Christmas vs. Chanukah

Which one would win in a fight?

Actually, my husband's cousin sent this humor bit to him in an e-mail, but it's here, too. It's about the differences between Christmas and Chanukah.

This one is my favorite:
Christmas is one day, same day every year. December 25. Jews love Dec. 25th. It's another paid day off work. We go to movies and out for Chinese food, and Israeli dancing. Chanukah is 8 days. It starts the evening of the 24th of Kislev, whenever that falls. No one is ever sure. Jews never know until a non Jewish friend asks when Chanukah starts, forcing us to consult a calendar so we don't look like idiots. We all have the same calendar, provided free with a donation from either the World Jewish Congress, the kosher butcher, or the local Sinai Memorial Chapel (especially in Florida).
This is funny because when I read it I had to go look at the calendar to see when Chanukah was. It's this Friday night. Time to check for burnt-out electric menorah bulbs.

P.S. The spell check does not recognize "Chanukah."

P.P.S. God does not know how to spell "Chanukah."
