>Saturday Morning Cartoons: G-dcast Spins Chanukah!

>Now that Thanksgiving is behind us and Black Friday is just a memory, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday. No, I am not talking about Christmas, I’m talking about Chanukah!

Chanukah starts next week, December 1st – December 9th, so I thought why not start the holiday season off on the the right path and find a little cartoon that explains what Chanukah is all about. It’s not just about presents, menorahs and latkes you know.
