Its a shitty holiday this year. It snuck up on me like a fart in the breeze. I hate this early Chanukah crap.
Im sad because this is my first Chanukah without my grandfather who recently passed away who was immensley important to me. And I'll be sitting in the DHL hub every night of Chanukah this year flying peoples crappy christmas presents around instead of being with familly.
But in the spirit of it all I'm happy to be alive.

josh is correct. I can't remember why but giving money is a chanukkah tradition and is called "gelt". You may also know it as the sweet chocolate candies in the shape of gold coins that are meant to be traded while playing with a dreadle.
