Talking to yourself is a sign of impending mental collapse.

Couldn't have said it better...
To be fair, I couldn't really have said it at all, as my Schwartz is not nearly as long as Gideon's. However, I'm a big fan of putting Chanukah (or as the wife would say, Hanukkah) in perspective. It's a minor holiday, a very minor one, and having it marketed (for lack of a better word) as the Jewish equivalent of Christmas is silly. Gideon gives an enlightening 411 on Chanukah's position in the Jewish holiday canon.
