Some Random Observations

Has anyone ever noticed how well the words of Maoz Tzur fit with the tune of Deck the Halls?

If your latkes are baked in Canola oil instead of olive oil, is it really in commemoration of the miracle?

Who knew, when Adam Sandler wrote those immortal words "O.J. Simpson - not a Jew!" back in the '90s that anyone would ever care again beyond that year?

I'm not a big fan of Christmas carols. Aside from the fact that I'm Jewish, they just don't... move me. However, there is one that I happen to think is hauntingly beautiful - the Carol of the Bells. To hear a beautiful men's a capella version of it, click here.

It's very disheartening to read that things that you thought were so extreme that they surely can't exist actually, in fact, do (read the comments).

That and Silent Night have nice sound to them...

I thought the OJ line was pretty continuous! :)

I don't think Maoz Tzur fits well at all...?!

I'm a Christian and I don't tend to like Christmas carols ;)

But I do like the one you posted, as well as "O Holy Night".
