Not at all! It's the thought that counts . . . and thank you for the thought!

I'm not even Jewish, but I love this song by the Barenaked Ladies:
How Lucky are we that we have lights so we can see
Although the day is done
What a miracle that a spark lifts these candles out of the dark
Every evening, one by one
Until the end of hanukkah, of hanukkah.
With the jingle bells and the toys
And the TV shows and noise
It's easy to forget
At the end of the day
Our whole family will say
These words for Hanukkah
Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha'olam, asher kid'shanu
B'mitz'votav v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Hanukkah.
(Blessed are You, Lord our G-d, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and commanded us to kindle the Chanukah light.)
Light the candles for Hanukkah, for Hanukkah
We remember how Maccabees
Fought so all of us could be free
And so we celebrate on this festival of the lights
There's a joyful time every night
But we illuminate the candles of Hanukkah, of Hanukkah
Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha'olam she'asa niseem
La'avoteinu bayamim haheim baz'man hazeh.
(Blessed are You, Lord our G-d, King of the universe, who performed miracles for our forefathers in those days, at this time.)

How nice. A happy Hanukkah thread on the Forum. Thank you to my Christian friends for the Hanukkah greetings, and a merry Xmas to you, and wishes for a happy and healthy New Year to everyone.
