These are big times. Of course, Hanukkah is the first holiday of the season, and it's celebrated by Jews all around the world - from the US, to Europe, to the Soviet Union - everywhere. In celebration of Hanukkah there's eight days of presents, and my favorite way to remember Hanukkah is of course to listen to Adam Sandler's song.
The unemployment extension expired last night, which means that as people exhaust their current tiers they will not be eligible for further benefits. Many think that the whole debate over the benefits will somehow be resolved soon, but if that's the case I have yet to see any promising signs that the extension will be passed. This is disheartening to say the least. After all, this is the holiday season.
In addition, it's World AIDS Day. Stars like Kim Kardashian are living a "digital death" by turning off their social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to raise awareness of the day. Actually, it did raise my awareness. When I didn't get my hourly Kim Kardashian Twitter update I thought something was up. A quick search on the Internet lead me to find out that it's World AIDS Day.
SO it's a big day in World News. Stay tuned for further updates!
