Chanukkah Day 5: The Empire Strikes Back
This ordeal is past the halfway point. You're almost there.
Your gift for day five:
A Cartridge Pen, made by your grandfather from Hawaiian Driftwood he found while on Vacation
Wait, this is actually a cool gift. What is this doing here? It's a practical gift you might actually use too. Is this real life?
3 days left. You feel like you're about to hit the proverbial wall here.
Chanukkah Day 4: The Price of Freedom
The sunset signals the beginning of day four, and the halfway point to the end of this.
Your gift for day four:
A Driedel and a Bag of Chocolate Coins
Your Aunt wants you and your cousin to play for old time's sake. You could be out at a theater with your friends watching The Last Jedi. Instead, you're spinning a top like a child while you have all the meaning, nuance and subtlety of Kobayashi-san Chi no Maidragon explained to you.
4 days to go. The second half is always the roughest.
Chanukkah Day 3: The Heart of the Tiger
Time to light the third candle.
Your gift for day three:
Adam Sandler's 'Pixels' on DVD
Your aunt remembered you were big into Adam Sandler when you were 12. Your past has come back to haunt you. Do you even have a DVD player in the house anymore?
