To any and all cruising past this little roadside stand on the internet super-highway:

Merry Christmas !
Happy Hanukkah !

The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing other's loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas. ~W. C. Jones

Put on your yalmulka, here comes Hanukkah
It's so much fun-akkah to celebrate Hanukkah,
Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights,

Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights....
-Adam Sandler

"O! 'tis easier to keep Holidays than Commandments."
~ Benjamin Franklin

Do give books - religious or otherwise - for Christmas. They're never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal. - - - Lenore Hershey

In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukka' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukka!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'" - - - Dave Barry "Christmas Shopping: A Survivor's Guide"

I bought my brother some gift-wrap for Christmas. I took it to the Gift Wrap department and told them to wrap it, but in a different print so he would know when to stop unwrapping. -- Steven Wright
