Happy Hanukkah!

A reminder of how many days there are

Print Email

Attention East Coasters: you have about a half hour until Hanukkah begins. (People in other parts of the country have a little longer; people in other parts of the world: Happy Hanukkah!) To get you nice and fresh, Tablet Magazine re-presents this video of Sen. Orrin Hatch, Republican of Utah, singing “Eight Days of Hanukkah,” an original song whose lyrics he wrote. This holiday gimmick, whose provenance was explained by contributing editor Jeff Goldberg at the time, was supposed to be for only one year, but as you can see it has burned brightly for three years now. A miracle, you might say.
