    I came across this article in a Google search for Chanukah gift tags. I feel compelled to comment because the author of this list clearly doesn't know anything about Jewish cuture. Chanukah is not the Jewish Christmas, no matter how the media portrays it. Jews don't go around getting a gift for everyone they know for Chanukah. But, for the sake of argument, let's analyze the gift suggestions. You wouldn't get dad a menorah at all because the candles are the woman's mitzvah. Getting anyone a star of David seems pretty schmaltzy. And Chanukah dinner? Seriously? It's not Christmas; there isn't a formal dinner! Sometimes there's a Chanukah party, but those tend to be pretty informal. There's certainly no big family gathering that you must attend. As for the stainless steel latke server, like the star of David, it's pretty schmaltzy. If you do attend a Chanukah party and really feel that you must bring a gift, your best bet is probably a bottle of wine or something else that's generic like that. As for the Image3D RetroViewer, it seems like a cool product but Jews don't really take pictures at Chanukah. There might be a few pics floating around of kids opening some gifts, but certainly there's not a photo album worth.
