My grandparents are visiting and we've just finished decorating our tree. a-hard-days-night-george-9 I also tried to learn Wonderful Christmastime last night, using some delay on my guitar to simulate the synths -- an interesting experiment indeed ahdn_george_01

Some of you may remember this from last year...

Beating Ariana Grande into 3rd place, Ava Max into 2nd, this year's UK Chrimble #1:

(And they are a real family! Worked out better than he thought!)

Of note, John & Yoko's Happy Xmas (War Is Over) is at #29 while Paul's Wonderful Christmastime  is at #35.

Well, LadBaby are back for another go at Chrimble #1, all proceeds again going to the Trussell Trust food bank, and guess what London studio named after a Beatles album let them in which allowed them to record their follow-up...

I’m not entirely sure there is a set spelling for Hanukkah.... I know Hanukkah and Chanukah are the most common ones but I’ve seen it spelled a lot of different ways. Not sure if they’re correct though. I’ll have to ask my grandma...

Please do ask your grandma, Fiddy - ask her if this website with 16 different variations is also correct:

So I asked my grandma about the Hanukkah spelling and she said there’s no set thing. It’s translated from the Hebrew alphabet to the English alphabet, and there’s not really a direct translation for, like, the Jewish hhhchkkchckchh sorta sound, and there’s a letter for it in Hebrew but not in English. So they did their best and did it like Chanukah, but Hallmark started doing Hanukkah in all their greeting cards, with an H, so that started becoming really common too. But she said that the spelling doesn’t matter as long as it gets the pronunciation across. Of course, it’s supposed to have the aforementioned hhhhkchkkkchhhh sound, but Americans just say “h.”  Interesting stuff.

These sorts of things are fascinating. I'm glad I asked, and I'm glad you found out - I'm now a wiser man! Thanks to your grandma, Fiddy! apple01

Someone is currently covering 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over)' on my tv, I think it's Alexandra Burke. I think she's gone thru the school where you're taught more warbling = more feeling. If it had been sung without all that it would have been a fine cover.

Interesting. Do American Jews pronounce it correctly?
