Happy Hanukkah From The Four Questions

What is Dave wearing today? Dave is wearing Lightning gear today. Alas, this show of support didn’t help the Bolts win.

What is making Dave happy today? Dave and the Complimentary Spouse celebrated the first night of Hanukkah.

What is Dave’s inspirational thought for the day? Dave says gifts aren’t really important — having family and friends to exchange them with is the truly valuable thing!

What is one of Dave’s holiday traditions? Dave chants the brucha for the lighting of the candles as quickly as possible. It was something he and his brothers did as kids so they could get gifts sooner. Dave can do the whole thing in, oh, five seconds or so. Here’s what it looks like:

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה, יְיָ
אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ, מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם,
אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָֽׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֺתָיו
וְצִוָּֽנוּ לְהַדְלִיק נֵר שֶׁל חֲנֻכָּה.
