Holiday Question of the Day:

This song often played around Christmas uses the same music as a Christmas carol and makes references to a singer named after an important person in the Christmas story and a fictional news person disliked by Dan Quail.

Answer to Yesterday’s Question: The story of the Miracle of Hanukah is no where in the Jewish Bible, for that matter as far as we know it isn’t in any Christian Bible either. Although Bibles with the Apocrypha contain the books of 1 and 2 Maccabees and have the story of the rededication of the temple, neither talk about the oil lasting for days. (Although there are like 2 or 3 more books of Maccabees, we have never seen them anywhere and don’t know if maybe they have the miracle in them.)
