    When you’re sick of Christmas music do what I do. Use the car cd player or get an attatchment to play your mp3.

    @c.davies: Even older. Remember listening to Brenda Lee and Rockin around the Christmas Tree getting ready for grade school in the late ’50’s…recorded in 1958

    Exactly! This is why I hate seeing this stuff appearing in September.

    Try haunkeah then. I remember as a kid some people celebrated haunekah for that 12 day gift thing.

    It’s Chanukah, or Hanukkah, and it’s only 8 days. You’ve confused it with “The 12 Days of Christmas”.

    And furthermore, we only get gifts on one day of the holiday, usually the last day. The rest of the time, we have latke parties (a latke is a potato pancake that is great topped with iether applesauce or sour cream), and commemoration of the occasion by lighting candles on a Chanukiah (candle-holder that holds nine candles; also called a menorah), denoting the great miracle that occurred when the Jews won back their Temple from the tyrannical King Antiochus. When it came time to re-dedicate the Temple, they found that there was only enough oil in the Chanukiah to last one day, and it would take eight days to get a new supply. But miraculously, the oil lasted eight days.

    “It’s officially beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”

    JPuzzleWhiz: It started as the Saturnalia, then Christians adopted it as one of their high holy days, then Saturn returned and from Halloween to Boxing Day are all high holy days for our state religion – Mammon worship.
