    Ruthie is just fibbing now. She may know lots of stuff but she should be truthful.

    An ‘upial’ must be ‘French’ for alien.

    @Arye Uygur

    Translation please. I’m not Jewish, have tried 7 different online Hebrew to English translators, and all just echo back what you wrote. I also tried Yiddish to English in Google, and it did the same. I would guess it’s a Hannukah greeting, but would prefer English. Thank you in advance.

    As a Hannukah gift, Jon Stewart was given a dreidel by Gene Robinson, who was the Monday guest on The Daily Show. That’s why I chose this eCard (have no memory of seeing a dreidel before).

    @Arye Uygur was wishing you the blessings of Hannukah ( also spelled Chanukah ).
    re; the Dreidel:
    Dreidel is a Yiddish word that comes from the German word “drehen,” which means “to turn.” In Hebrew the dreidel is called a “sevivon,” which comes from the root “savov” and also means “to turn.”
    A dreidel is a four-sided spinning top with a Hebrew letter on each side. It is used during Hanukkah to play a popular children’s game that involves spinning the dreidel and betting on which Hebrew letter will be showing when the dreidel stops spinning. Children usually play for a pot of gelt, which are chocolate coins covered in gold colored tin foil, but they can also play for candy, nuts, raisins – anything really!
    A game similar to the dreidel game was popular during the rule of Antiochus. During this period Jews were not free to openly practice their religion, so when they gathered to study Torah they would bring a top with them. If soldiers appeared, they would quickly hide what they were studying and pretend to be playing a gambling game with the top.

    A marsupial is someone who mars and usurps facts with disinformation.

    @SUSAN NEWMAN

    Thanks for that Susan. As an Irish goy, I’m in a perpetual state of learning when it comes to Jewish tradition and custom.
    I hope your holidays are going well and you are enjoying the festival of lights with family and friends.
    As we Irish would say,
    All the Best !

    The opposite of “downial”?
