Talking of doughnuts, I have had some serious halachik shaalos about doughnuts on Chanukah:

1) is the icing on the doughnuts considered a chatzitza?

2) aren't the additional toppings like icing and chocolate a problem of בל תוסיף in the חפצא of the doughnut?

3) what is the minimum shiur in the size of the doughnut? כזית כביצה כגריס

4) is the jelly halocho lemoshe mesinai? 

5) if one forgot to eat a doughnut on one of the nights, is there תשלומין on the next night?

6) if you have a choice between 2 doughnuts, one has no topping (so no problem of חציצה) but it has no jelly ר״ל! Or one which has jelly, but it also has icing. So should u go for the one with jelly even though there is a problem of חציצה because of the icing, or should u go for the one without jelly but at least there is no חציצה! Or שב ועל תעשה עדיף?

As the plane settled down at Ben Gurion airport, the voice of the Captain came on:

"Please remain seated with your seatbelt fastened until this plane is at a complete standstill and the seat belt signs have been turned off."

"To those of you standing in the aisles, we wish you a Happy Chanukah."

"To those who have remained in their seats, we wish you a Merry Xmas."

i have that doll in my room- my favorite material possession in the whole world
it's a little chassid with button eyes holding a saxophone over his mouth. (it even has tzitzit!) it plays the musical tune for santa claus is coming to town
what actually happened was the manufacturer placed the wrong song piece in the doll, and when people realized the hilarious mistake, they bought them like hot-cakes. i would love to buy another one for my friend, but it seems they're all sold out.

I woman I know brought back a doll from Bnei Brak. It was a Santa Claus doll, the seller had colored the beard black and added a black coat and a shtreimel to make it look like a Rabbi. But when you push the button, it's stomach shakes and it plays Jingle Bells.

I actually like the idea of using christmas tree lights as a sukka decoration - kind of an opportunity to turn some chol into kodesh. Santa Claus seems a bit bizarre, though, I agree that he's certainly likely to be dressed much too warm for the season here... Anyway, the lights didn't bother me, until my neighbor got some super-fancy ones that played "Jingle Bells" all during our chag meal Oh, well.

As a kid growing up in NJ I always envied and enjoyed my neighbors' X-mas lights. Now, living in Israel I get to enjoy my own lights adorning my Succhah. Yet another benefit of Aliyah!

I thought the big gedolim specifically banned xmas decorations for sukkot.

I was in a very chasdidishe Shul once and a guy forgot to silence his phone and he actually had Jingle Bells as his ringtone. He probably had no idea and just thought it was a nice leibedige niggun. Oy Yoy Yoy, Oy Yoy Yoy, Oy Yoy Yoy Yoy Yoy...

The Rebbe Santa

geezholes • wrote
my uncle said he once overheard two Israeli kids talking about a Santa Claus poster in a sukkah. One said, "Who is that on the poster?" and the other said back, "Oh, it's some rebbe from America."

Baila • wrote
Silly. It's not Santa, it's the "alte zeide mit de roiteh bekeshe"

Frum Punk • wrote
I remember hearing a story of a chassidic tisch at Chanukah time where the Rebbe asked about the rebbe on the Coca-Cola bottle. They told him it was "The Klausinger Rebbe".
That could just be an urban legend though

A milsa b'dichasa, ligabey inyana d'yoima.

One cratzmech, as all the goyim filed into church for services, there was a santa in full gear standing near the door. In his hands was a large hat which said CHARITY on it in large letters.
6 feet away from him on the other side of the door, was a chossid in full gear, who likewise a hat in his hands which said CHARITY on it.
On by one, the goyim would get to the door, look at the chossid in amazement, and drop money into the santa's hat.
Finally one man approached the chossid and explained to him gently "Sir, I respect you and your religion, but in all honesty I must tell you, if your looking for people to give you charity - this is definitely not the place!"
The chossid chuckled, turned to the santa and said "Shmeel!! Herst? Ehr zoogt far enz vee zoy tsee machin buisness!!" (Shmeel, do you hear? This guy is telling US how to do business!!)

Important question sponsored posthumously in honor of k.laffen.99

How many Doug-nuts a Jew is required to eat over the Hannuka festival?
If he finds out that 1 wasn't under rabbinic supervision, does it count?
Is supervision by a rabbi of a Temple reliable?
I heard it is reliable for the nut part of the doughnut.

Does anyone know???????

There are another 99.9 questions, so we need these answered asap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If he finds out that 1 wasn't under rabbinic supervision, does it count? As long as 2 were under supervision, then it's Batel B'rov

Is supervision by a rabbi of a Temple reliable? 
I heard it is reliable for the nut part of the doughnut. Because the dough, the Rabbi takes for himself
