Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Hanukkah for Humanists from your Happy Historian (something to mull on a gray day in the no man's land between xmas and new years.) [Jennifer Michael Hecht]:


Thanks Jennifer for bringing this out of the archives. Yes, I still hear you here. I wonder what you would write today if the NYT asked for a Hanukkah piece. And yes, the days between Christmas and New Years do feel like a no man's land. Thanks. Stacey

Thanks for your note Stacey. And you are right of course, today it would be all about my kids. What do the candle's mean? They mean we get to wave our hands at our faces three times. And presents. It's pretty beautiful.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
