We here in Maine aren't entirely a homogeneous group, so sometimes we miss out on a broad understanding of other cultures' traditions and holidays.  So, today being the first day of Hanukkah I wanted a clearer understanding of the Jewish (minor) holiday and came across this great video of Mayim Bialik helping me, and possibly you, with just that.

Mayim charmingly explains many misconceptions about Hanukkah, or Chanukah, like, it's a Jewish Christmas or that it involves a ton of presents.

Thank you, Mayim.  And, to all of our Jewish friends out there, Hanukkah Sameach from Z107.3!
