Some Chicago Boyz know each other from student days at the University of Chicago. Others are Chicago boys in spirit. The blog name is also intended as a good-humored gesture of admiration for distinguished Chicago School economists and fellow travelers.

Hag chanuka sameach!
And Happy Hanukkah to you as well, and to all Chicago boyz everywhere.
BTW: We had the same color combination for our candles tonight too.
Stylish menorah, J.
Happy Hanukkah Jon! And many more!
Happy Hannuka to you as well!
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it “Christmas” and went to church; the Jews called it “Hanukkah” and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say “Merry Christmas!” or “Happy Hanukkah!” or (to the atheists) “Look out for the wall!” – Dave Barry
Gerry, I am trying to be a polite atheist
Besides, [again and again]: Jews could be atheists and agnostics, not necessarily ascribing to Judaism the religion.
Happy Hannuka, Merry Christmas, and Look Out For The Wall to everyone…
Tatyana – you’re a character ;-)
Tatyana, A rabbi, a Jewish agnostic, and a Jewish priest go into this bar….
Tyouth, didn’t I explain you the last time that “Jewish priest” is impossible in principle?
Bill: I thought we all are, each and every one.
Aside (Jon, please forgive the tangent): I was preparing my mailings for the upcoming New Year and realized I’m running out of stamps. Bought the only ones that remained in the USPS office: Happy Kwanza! My advance apologies to all recipients, please don’t be offended!
Ah,the Postal Service,always a day late, and a dollar short. Don’t they know that Kwanzaa is out of style now? Think they’re brown-nosing The One?
@Renminbi – I remember reading the history of Kwanza – like Jerry Seinfield’s (more accurately George Costanza’s father) – Festivus )the holiday for the Rest of Us) – it was completely manufactured – in the late 60s if I am not mistaken.
Ron Karenga invented Kwanzaa in the sixties and the usual suspects then swallowed the bait. Ann Coulter did a whole piece on the Karenga,FBI,Kwanzaa connection.
