    What did you give?

    What did you get?

    What stores, products, deals, etc. do you recommend?

    And of course this is the Yeshiva World Coffee Room so… what is your hashkafik opinion about presents? Is it Chukos HaGoyim?

    Sorry, didn’t give anything and didn’t get anything. My kids have tons of toys, books, CD’s, etc… They didn’t need anything. I wrote on a previous thread that I felt giving gifts too much like the goyim anyway. Since when did this gift giving business on Chanukah start anyway?? If someone could tell who started this mishugaus, I would love to know??

    mazal:

    The retailers and advertising. And you are correct, it comes from kratsmich.

    lol no prob! Pick ya up from work!

    We could go get mod some coffee no milk 2% sugar on the way (did I get it right)

    2% sugar, what are you trying to do to me??? maybe I need to start a whole thread on how does everyone drink their coffee :o). Ok for those who do not know: no sugar and 2% milk thanks anyway – it’s the thought that counts. YW Moderator-72

    Yes, 72. That is why I offered you a choice only from my famous Cyber Blend and Java Applet Coffees. Your safety is ensured by simply running the brew through a reliable virus scan.

    Charlie, is that the wife? You guys look so worried.

    BTW mods, my post/graphic for ********* didn’t make its way up here. Is that what I get for giving you coffee with NO sugar?

    I felt that the post that didn’t make it could make the intended feel uncomfortable. YW Moderator-72

    Btw, I gotta thank YWN for something, I don’t know where the other thread on chanuka gifts was, but when I was reading through it I really learnt something new.

    I always gave out chanuka gifts, but this year when I was reading the thread on how the idea of gifts originated from xmas, I decided no more gifts and I’m only giving out gelt this year!

    Thanx guys!

    SJS were you able to pick up anything at CVS Sunday or Monday? All the A&H cleaner was gone at mine but I picked up some other stuff (but I’m not as good as you since I rolled $43 in ecbs from Thanksgiving and paid $1 out of pocket).
