President Obama celebrates Hanukkah for the last time in the White House

Happy Hanukkah!  For this year's celebration of the first night of the Festival of Lights, I'm going to be a good environmentalist and recycle the concept behind Eight years of President Obama pardoning turkeys with this video of last week's Evening Hanukkah Reception.

Farewell, Mr. President.  I will miss you in the White House.

For more on Hanukkah, please read Vox's article about the history of the holiday.


  1. I hope President Obama does Festivus next year. Not that he's really the type to air grievances, but he could invite the other 320 million of us who will have plenty to air.

    Fun fact: "menorah" and "minaret" are cognate words -- in the original Hebrew and Arabic the pronunciations are even more similar.

    1. Maybe he could get Keegan-Michael Key to serve as his anger translator again.

      Also, thanks for that fun fact. I didn't know that.
