Mmmmm ... Hanukkah Ham ...

Posted By on Wed, Dec 5, 2007 at 2:09 PM

For the gazillions of Jews in Cleveland, last night marked for the first night of Hanukkah. The “chosen people” celebrated by drinking too much wine and eating greasy latkes and donuts (and we didn’t even feel that bad about it, either. Getting ridiculously drunk on Manischewitz is practically the 11th commandment). It seems that some grocery stores nationwide are getting into the holiday spirit as well – which we think is totally great and all. But next time they jump full-force into our holiday, they might want to first consult a rabbi, or maybe Adam Sandler. Last we checked, ham was definitely not a Jewish specialty. -- Rebecca Meiser
