It's That Time of Year Again Part 1

It's that time of year again. The time where people see to be in a more upbeat mood because of the songs they play on the radio. Or because they are about to get a lot of presents. Either way, Christmas is that holiday that makes people happy, give presents and maybe smile at a stranger. (Is that taking it too far?) Christmas starts getting celebrated roughly around the same time that the metamucil wipes your system from all that cranberry soaked turkey.

But the real amazing thing about Christmas (whether it's a good thing or not is for another time), is the fact that it takes over the holidays around it. For example, it is very rare to have a store put up a sign in April that says Happy Passover or in October Happy Succos. But it definitely isn't rare to see a store hang up a Happy Hanukkah. Only because people coucldn't have Merry Christmas signs without a Happy Hanukkah sign. Then the blacks got insulted that there was no Holiday for them, so they made their own.

One of the things I love is that there are a lot of great songs and videos out there that were made for the Seasons Holidays that could always put you in a great mood. So in honor of the holiday season, I will post some of my favorite holiday related songs and videos that I like. Feel free to send me and if I like it enough I will post it. We are going to first start off with Chanukah so I won't feel so guilty. Today I'm going to start with some old Woot Podcasts about Chanukah.

The first one is from the day before Chanukah in 2006. There is a line or two in there that is not appropriate so use your own judgment when listening to it. The second one is from 2007 and the third is from 2008.
