Let me add that Russia in the 19th century and early 20th century was
still on the old Roman calendar, and consequently 13 days behind the
Western European and American calendar.
In my family, we never knew when to celebrate my father's birthday, Dec.
7 or Dec. 20. So, we played it safe and, because he was born on the 5th
day of Chanukah, that's when we partied in his honor!
