[Hey, You!] Festival of Lightsabers
Thank you, thank you, thank you to my son’s first-grade teacher for clueing in the kiddies about Hanukkah. My non-Jewish, extremely lapsed-Catholic boy mentioned offhandedly that they’d learned about the holiday at his public school that day. Minutes later, he was careening around the house with his collapsible lightsaber, making blaster noises. (He does this Every. Single. Day.) But instead of muttering “Look out! Battle droids!” and “Anakin!” and “Padme!” under his breath as he played, he kept going on and on about “Maccabees!” and “We’ve gotta get to the temple!” I laughed and laughed and laughed. It looks like the Schwartz is strong in this one!
