Hamtkah's Vigor Sets Pace
for Holiday Celebrations

By the Oak-Woodser
Hanukah just isn't celebrated
the way it used to be—which
to our *way of thinking is cause,
per se, for celebration.
Only a generation also, except
for the fact that youngsters re-
ceived a certain amount of
"Hanukah gelt," there was lit-
tle else that gave the holiday
any real significance.
Many youngsters grew up
knowing all there was to know
about Santa Claus. They could
sing all the Christmas carols
(minus certain words) that they
had learned in school. But
Judas Maccabaeus was almost
a total stranger, and not even
"Maoz Tsur" (Rock of Ages)
made a dent on their holiday
hit parade. "
Today's- Jeviih child—even
though he may: get confused
at times, like: the - little boy
who kept expecting -Judah
Maccabee to come down his
chimney — is brought much
closer to the spirit of the fes-
tival.
He can tell you that glorious
cast of characters—Mattathias,
Hannah, Judas Maccabaeus and
his six brothers—who brought
the world its first victory in the

guaranteed!"
