Happy Hanukkah Socks are more than just socks - they are skid-resistant too! These beautiful blue socks covered with menorahs and dreidels and the skid-resistant soles are comprised of the Star of David design. The colors, the Star of David and the dreidels all speak of a rich Jewish tradition.
Probably meant to be worn by people of the Jewish faith during the season of Hanukkah, I feel any adult would make a statement by wearing Happy Hanukkah Socks at any time. As neighbors on a small planet, we—and especially our children—need to learn our unique histories and beliefs.
While showing off your Happy Hanukkah Socks, you can explain a little of the Hanukkah miracle so long ago, of the small jar of oil that kept the temple fire burning for eight days and nights. Then “spin” the legend of how the dreidel had been born at a time when the Jewish people had been overtaken by Syrian/Greek rule and they’d been forbidden to study. The Jews would mask their sharing of the sacred scriptures by playing with a spinning-top gambling device. The troops would see gamblers instead of serious scholars and never realize what these holy men were actually doing.
Now, more than ever, it seems we need an appreciation and sharing of our multicultural traditions. These Happy Hanukkah Socks can help.
