A Chanucah story - with a little help from Friends

The festival of lights is upon us and with that in mind, I feel it is time to share my "top Jewish moment of 2011".

I was at a party earlier this year, when the subject of Chanucah traditions came up in conversation with someone for whom, it's safe to assume, December 25 is a pretty awesome day.

We discussed the usual - oily foods, eight days of presents (I wish), lighting candles - when he said (in total seriousness):

"And you guys have the holiday armadillo, too."

Ah yes, when the Maccabees took on the Greeks, they had the help of a trusted mammal with a leathery armour shell. Thank you, Ross Geller, for letting the world in on that little secret.

Happy Chanucah, one and all.
