Chanukkah In August

 And here's the inevitable Chanukkah post for the season.  Not too many songs this year, I'm afraid, only nine, and many of those are repeats from previous years. But it's still a better selection than you'll find elsewhere, since you're unlikely to find a selection anywhere else.  That's one of the reasons I started to do this sort of Christmas in July celebration. No one else was doing it, and I thought it was a worthwhile contribution. I hope you agree. Anyhow, here's a link to the Chanukkah portion of the season.  Enjoy!

I love your Chanukkah in August posts and I look forward to them every year. Of course, I'm nuttier than a fruitcake, so you have to keep that in mind. I never knew the Oompa Loompas recorded "Sevivon".

Ernie, as always, a big fun ride through wide-ranging historical archives and a fitting end to our shared mid-year experience. Me, I'm just trying to do my part to emphasize the length, breadth, width, depth, and substantial Method X of your efforts, minus the loving snark, what with my own limits for making those sorts of contributions. What follows is my attempt at providing a little help, with apologies in advance for whatever errors I may have added. Thanks, Ernie!

Glad you guys are paying attention to the Chanukkah post. Some years, it's the only post that gets no comments.
