Tuesday my parents, Ella and I accompanied Lainey to her school Christmas program. We were looking through the program and one of the songs the late elementary school was singing was a “Chanukah” song.
I say to my parents, “What IS the difference between ‘Ch‘anukah and Hanukkah?” (Notice the emphasis on the CH, yes, that’s how I pronounced it…) They looked at me in awed wonderment for a moment.
“It’s pronounced Hanukkah,” my mom replied.
“No, aren’t they two different holidays? I could have sworn they were two different holidays…”
“No… they are the same…”
“Really… wow. I had no idea!”
UPDATE: I just found this card that sums it up…
