Home Alone 2 & 3

Blockbusters Reviewed

Welcome to the 25th edition of My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts.  Last fortnight, I reviewed Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019).  This fortnight, I’m reviewing:

  • Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992), rated PG for low level violence
  • Home Alone 3 (1997), rated  PG for low level violence

Those of course are the Australian ratings; in the United States, the ratings are:

  • Home Alone 2 – PG for comic action and mild language
  • Home Alone 3 – PG for slapstick violence, language and mild sensuality

As usual, I’ll give the trailers and a clip each at the end.  And as usual, I offer the following disclaimer JUST to be safe:

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD.  PROCEED AT OWN RISK.

Chanukkah – The Feast of Hanukkah

Yesterday was the first day of Hanukkah in Australia (in the calendar I follow).

J-M's History Corner

Shabbat Shalom!  Today (December 21st, 2018) is (in Australia) the first day of Hanukkah (known in Hebrew of Chanukkah), the 8-day feast commemorating the rededication of the Jewish Temple by the Maccabees three years to the day after it was defiled by pagans.

You may notice that most people have already celebrated Hanukkah.  I explain the calendar I use in Yom Teruah – The Feast of Trumpets.  It begins on the 25th day of the 9th month (Kislev), and ends on the 3rd day of the 10th month (Tevet).  You can see the feast calendar I’m following for the next year here: Feast Calendar.

What is the origin of Hanukkah?  It is explained in the Bible:

The Jews in Jerusalem and those in the land of Judea,

To their Jewish kindred in Egypt,

Greetings and true peace.

May God do good to you, and may he…
