A man wanted to become a monk so he went to the monastery and talked to the abbot (the head monk). The abbot said, “You must take a vow of silence and can only say two words every three years.” The man agreed.

After the first three years, the abbot came to him and said, “What are your two words?”

“Food cold!” the man replied. The abbot made sure the meals are not cold.

Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, “What are your two words?”

“Robe dirty!” the man exclaimed. The abbot ordered his robe be washed.

Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, “What are your two words?”

– “Bed hard!”. The abbot made sure the mattress got re-stuffed.

Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, “What are your two words?”

– “I quit!” said the man.

“Well,” the abbot replied, “I’m not surprised – you’ve done nothing but complain since you got here!”

Happy Hanukkah! Also known as the Festival of Lights, the 8-day celebration begins at sundown tonight to commemorate the story of the Maccabees lighting the menorah with a drop of oil. It's Mutt Day! This day honors our canine friends that are a mix of breeds and whose ancestry is unknown. But that doesn't stop us loving our special friends. It's Advent Sunday, the Christian celebration in anticipation of the birth of Jesus, culminating in Christmas morning. It's Business of Popping Corn Day (no clear origins of this holiday other than celebrating making a business of selling popcorn), Day for the Abolition of Slavery (an UN initiative; there are over 40 million victims of modern slavery which includes forced labor, debt bondage, forced marriages, and human trafficking), Fritters Day (a yummy batter or breading, sometimes filled with meat, vegetables, or fruit; can be a dessert or a side dish at dinner), Safety Razor Day (honors the tool of injury-free shaving; first patented in 1880), Play Basketball Day (another one of unclear origins or reason other than someone wanted an excuse to play basketball; good exercise with the kids), and Special Education Day (celebrates the anniversary of IDEA--Individuals with Disabilities Education Act--the first special education law signed in 1975). In 1804, Napoleon was crowned Emperor of France.
