Oops. . .Happy Hannukah!


I love holidays — nearly all of them, but there is a clutzy side to me that sometimes reveals itself too much when I get into religious and cultural festivities that are a degree removed.
For instance, a couple of years ago — walking through the William Penn Omni Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on the way to a fantastic holiday party — I noticed that the light bulbs on a beautiful menorah had been partly unscrewed that some were lit and others were not.
I promptly “fixed” that and got them all blaring brightly again. Looked great — but oops, learned later that I had messed with success.
Apologies to all — but I still enjoy Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa (!), and all the rest.
Happy Hannukah to my many Jewish friends around the world — and in particular, to those who read The Washington Note.
All best.

    Very funny. It reminds me of a visit to friends in Conn.yeeeeeeeears ago when I commented on the number of Amish in the area. Heh.
    Everyone laughed. They were Hasidic.

    Real people periodically klutz out. Only the phoney don’t.

    Oy vey, the English spelling usually is “klutz.”
    But then Chanukah/Hanukah, Hanukkah is not exactly consistent either.
    Oh well, if they didn’t invite you to the White House Chanukah party, get one of those little Jewish beanie hats and try to crash it.
