Happy Holiday to all peoples of the world as tonight starts

15 posts in this topic

My Holiday,

Hanukkah, Chanukah, Chanukkah or Chanuka ( spelled many ways )

starts tonight at sundown ,Happy holidays to u all from my holiday

we call it celebration of the lights

It involves a miracle when it took 8 days to make oil for lamps and ancient Isreal found they had only had 1 days worth after their oil was destroyed by fleeing occupying forces that were overthrown & the one days worth lasted the full 8 till more could be made

sometimes u it falls out exactly on Christmas but Jewish Calender a bit weird compared to English one so every year different

when u see on a calender its the first day of a Jewish holiday, like calenders will say Sunday the 9th is the first day of this holiday

Thats means first full day but all holidays start at sundown the night before, that is tonight, and end on sundown the last day

For a present all I want IS THE COLTS TO DOMINATE TITANS TOMORROW

It's not necessarily weird, it's simply based off of a lunal calendar cycle (about 354 days in a year). Therefore there will be significant movement of the holiday each year (11 days). But no matter how ya slice it, happy holidays to all and GO COLTS!!!

Guess I should of said different than English calender

History of it is weird to us now but made sense in ancient times as the year varying at times based on ripening of various crops etc, , well in modern times, u distilled it down to the current approximate 11 day difference between 12 lunar months and 1 solar year. , also instead of a leap day every 4 years there is a leap month ever 2 or 3 years based on rules I dont remember

Thanks for the Happy holidays though and appreciate the refining of my original explanation of using the word weird, where I grew up and the fights I got in for being Jewish , weird is a pretty kind word to some of the names i was called , the religion was called & the varying days holidays fell on compared ( how it was put the normal religion , ) to the English calender as well as other Jewish aspects

again my thanks & my respects, Barry

I hear ya. I cannot completely empathize; however, my fiancé is Jewish so I have been privvy to a small glimpse of what it's like. Luckily we are from a pretty progressive area of Chicago. Not that it made it any easier to find a dreidel to get our drink on for the first night last night lol.

find a dreidel hard, I love it, I have some wooden and plastic ones , varying sizes

wasnt asking for empathy.

I wouldnt change my childhood for anything else, was just stating something. u just must take all good and bad childhood , Like adult, situations and try to apply them in life to help toughen u up for when u grow up , u learn something from all experiences both good and bad

I feel I had a tremendous upbringing thanks top my beloved parents, pitfalls along the way of life are expected, as said just try & take the positive as best u can from any situation

Congratulations on your engagement, may u have a long and happy life together

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039416/

its described there as - A reporter pretends to be Jewish in order to cover a story on anti-Semitism, and personally discovers the true depths of bigotry and hatred.

Won 3 Oscars Pictue , director , supporting actress

. Another 9 wins & 6 nominations

TRAILOR

Uploaded on Apr 24, 2009

Philip Green is a highly respected writer who is recruited by a national magazine to write a series of articles on anti-Semitism in America. He's not too keen on the series, mostly because he's not sure how to tackle the subject. Then it dawns on him: if he was to pretend to all and sundry that he was Jewish, he could then experience the degree of racism and prejudice that exists and write his story from that perspective. It takes little time for him to experience bigotry. He soon learns the liberal-minded firm he works for doesn't hire Jews and that his own secretary changed her name and kept the fact that she is Jewish a secret from everyone. Green soon finds that he won't be invited to certain parties, that he cannot stay in so-called 'restricted' hotels and that his own son is called names in the street. His anger at the way he is treated also affects his relationship with Kathy Lacy, his publisher's niece and the person who suggested the series in the first place. Written by garykmcd

NY TIMES REVIEW

http://movies.nytimes.com/movie/review?res=9E0DE7DE113AE233A25751C1A9679D946693D6CF

====================================================================

, now this is an old movie, I was born 1954 so grew up in 50's & 60's as far as childhood, what he experiences in movie was if remember right ,worse than mine but then again he wwas experiencing adult issues

BTW I lived in a predominantly Jewish Brooklyn NY area, was bothered by gangs not just because of being Jewish but for multitude of other childish reasons as well

In order to play in the schoolyard across the street u or a member of your friends from any religion had to fight a member of this large family for the right to play there, u win fine, but heres the catch, no one ever knew the exact # of children in this family and sooner or later there was always 1 that was a monster, and thgey had various ones that were monsters in size & strength , so sooner oor later u know u got your a --- kicked but good

again just toughened me up for adulthood

enjoy your family reunion, all fine here , i

 

I really k like good black & white movies esp with great stars its amazing how younf dean stockwell is, , but saw this as a kid so all were back then virtually , its a really good picture , mine of course is from a jewish perspective , only issue is it portrays hhigh socirty basically and not what happened to ones like me in the trenches, i mean i cant as a child relate to not being allowed into a country club etc, unless its was a a kids club

 

the my colts and previous sites page was really great, had photos, not urls,  and since peyton left most taken down, and urls dont work from indy star , also stories are somewhat scattered among-st urls

 

this is v cool go here

 

go here   , very g hard to explai how to use but can always go back to original full  pages by clicking top part where says bayones colt page 

 

but if use links at right some take u to diifferent urls and then need to go back in browser, some key on , for example just the SI coveers, also if click on a cover or picture it enlarges , there is an x above ( IE ( )  it or near upper left  CHROME ) to get out of enlargement pending the browser ,

    • He almost said it years ago.   It finally slipped out.  Doesn't seem typical of him, but in those instances, his passion was running high.  Still can't be said on radio or TV, even though many were likely thinking the same things, even if it is not typical of them either.   Little fine, some time... all goes away.
    • Definitely need to go with the younger players....The 30 club, here today gone next year....
    • Trends are changing and the notion of giving up on any possession is too. 10 years ago it was a terrible idea to go for it on 4th and 1 on the 50. Today? 20+ teams do it no questions. Why? Because the odds are more likely you get a positive outcome when factoring the passing penalties than a turnover.  You know who rarely gives up on possessions? Belicheck. I would be shocked to see the Pats not call a slant or screen in that scenario on 2nd down. Belicheck should call You and ask what everyone else always does and he'd be a better coach.  
    • I said they are a second rate organization because they rushed their star player back from major surgery, causing making said injury even worse.  You stupidly implied that I said they are a second rate organization because their star player had an injury.  Go back and reread what you bolded in your response to me above if you are still confused, dummy:   ***Another brilliant move by that second rate organization.....having their superstar play in a regular season NFL game 6 f'ing weeks after having back surgery.***   And where did I say his career is over?  I didn't.  I said he will never be the same player.  Again, if you are still having issues comprehending this, what I said is right there in print earlier in this thread:   ***In all likelihood, the JJ Watt that we all know is done for. ***   I also suggest you log onto TexanTalk and read very closely posts made by CloakNNNDagger in regards to JJ Watt and his injury.  Dude won't be getting 20.5 sacks in a season, ever again.
