In the Jewish calender a day starts at sundown not sunrise so the first day of Chanukah is tomorow which really is tonight .
Tonight will be the first day and there r 8 in total...
The real question is if you do a happy hanukah (day 1) thread on tribe and then proceed to do a day 2, day 3 ... day 8. Would alex d ban you for spaming or do all the 8 days have to be combined into one thread on tribe? it would take away from it or cut it short so to say but that would be the thread is circumsized and therefore kosher/jewish.
wow. thats really strange.
i just clicked on my link, and it took me to the disney homepage, but then i typed www.jewhoo.com into my browser and it took me to the correct page.
but i swear, i didnt mess with the original link!
can someone who is less of a luddite explain this to me?
Not in my family. In my fam they gave me 8 presents every year until I was 13. When I had my bar mitzvah they told me that since they got me 8 every year, and im a man now, they are paid up on gifts until im 90. Since then Im lucky to get 1. lol
when i was little, i would get the gift from my folks on the first day. then on the second day i would get the gift from my grandparents. 3rd day i would get the gift from my great aunt...and on and on.
so its basically all the people who i would have gotten gifts from on one day of chanukah, but spread out over the whole holiday.
chanukah isnt really a holiday for giftgiving to grown-ups. thats more of a spill-over of christmas tradition.
