Menorah Seasonal Confusion
All our stuff, including our menorah, is currently in storage after our latest move, so I spent some time looking for menorahs instead of writing my dissertation. This probably wasn't the best use of my time, but that's neither here nor there. We didn't find one we liked enough to buy, so we're using a cheap-y tin menorah this year, but here are some highlights from my fruitless menorah search:
I like Christmas and all (I really do—it makes me a terrible Jew, I know, but the lights are so pretty and the candy is so delicious), but this might be pushing it a little too far.
Shoes. Another thing I really like. But also something that probably doesn't belong on your menorah.
Nothing wrong with pomegranates, but what the heck do they have to do with Chanukah? Rosh Hashana was a while back.
Um, what? Goldilocks and the Three Bears eat latkes?
I guess I'd maybe get this if you got married on Chanukah. Maybe. But should my menorah remind me that I'm married? Because specifically at this time of year I might forget?
