First, I appreciate the greetings regardless of my personal beliefs.

Now, to be a bit grammatical, if I may:
Channukah is spelled SO MANY ways, correct and otherwise, but that's the inherent problem when transliterating from a language that has a sound that English does not.
How does one spell the sound of clearing one's throat?  Is it CH or KH?
The 'A' should be short as in ahh.  The 'U' should be long. That's why I have 2 Ns and one K.

Regardless, 
HAPPY Holiday and HAPPY NEW YEARS!

Ben Roth

I really don't think the ARSC Listserve is the appropriate forum for venting opinions like this. Wish people however you think appropriate, but don't get on the soapbox about what's appropriate for others, at least not on this venue. And, it's not "maybe Hanukkah" - it IS Hanukkah, from Dec. 24 to Jan. 1.

Merry Christmas,
Happy Hanukkah,
Happy Holidays,
Happy New Year,
and anything else I may have forgotten...

Festively yours,
Gary

Hello - its not 'holiday' or 'festive'  - its Christmas also maybe Hanukkah. In the UK we are sick of the authorities telling us that we are not allowed to have a Christian celebration in case we might offend a mere 4% of those who hate our culture and want to subjugate us. And right now our Cathedrals and nativity displays are being guarded by police with machine guns - FGS. Have a Happy Christmas.
Enough of this PC nonsense. CJB.
