That was pretty cool
I enjoyed that. There were some girls I knew through the years who insisted that the gift-giving idea had nothing to do with the Christians, but I think they were either too embarrassed or too proud to say otherwise. I think everyone should be able to have a nice gift-giving holiday just as an expression of mutual love and appreciation.

I loved the comic! It gave me a great explaination of how Chanukah came to be.

in the cartoon, the adult character explained to the child that Chanuka gifts to children " so that they would feel left out next to their christian neighbors>"The Sages explain that "gelt" was given to the children on Chanuka as an incentive for the children to coninue with their "Chinuch", education, which is what the Macabbees fought for.I"ll admit that gift giving which was once exclusive to the children is now given to anyone, copying Christmas, but what is your source of that statemenet in the cartoon, that the origins of giving gifts to childern is to copy Christma?

Thanks a lot for your chanuka site. I am old and living isolated from any Jewish community and your site give me a deep yearning for the days, many decades ago, that I lived a real Jewish life. Thanks again!

Hannukah, a special occassion
It is a great article, specially for children or people who keep themselves away from judaism. It explains in simple ways the reason and meaning of Hannukah.
