Adam Sandler described Hanukkah best in his Chanukah Songs (there are 4):

He’s right! 8 crazy nights celebrating a miracle and boy do we celebrate! Greasy foods galore, candle lighting, dreidel spinning, present giving fun!
Don’t know what to bring to your friend’s crazy Chanukka party? Here are some perfect pairings – recipes included – to help you out (BTW, these beers are not necessarily kosher, if your friend is kosher here are some guidelines and suggestions):
Brisket – Rogue, Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale (yes, we see the irony in this one)
Chicken Schnitzel – Jackie O’s, Bourbon Barrel Oil of Aphrodite (And this one too. Sorry Maccabees!)
And the Hanukah Song Version 3 just for kicks!

Happy, Happy, Happy Happy Chanukkah! Happy Hanukka!
