We are pausing our Christmas Countdown to wish everyone a Happy Hanukkah!! Chanukah?
As little as about five years ago, the top Spelling choice on the Internet was Chanukah. But times are changing, even in the way the Jewish holiday of lights is celebrated and understood, and the Hanukkah spelling has gone mainstream. So, if you like to slightly buck the trend and go old school, Chanukah is your spelling.
With both correct, and about 14 others technically correct too, rest assured that you’ve got a pretty good shot at getting the spelling right. Whether you’re in tune with the latest spelling trend will be an entirely different story."Boogie Woogie Chanukah" is performed by the Boston Gay Men's Chorus in 2012, recorded live at Jordan Hall, New England Conservatory. Reuben M. Reynolds III Music Director -- Chad Weirick, Principal Accompanist & Assistant Music Director.
