gogl'-mogol' as geneaology #ukraine


Alan Shuchat <ashuchat@...>
 

I'm one of the many who were given goggle-moggle as kids. We
experienced it in a Jewish context, but it's apparently more general
than that. My Russian dictionary lists "gogl'-mogol'" as "beaten-up
egg and sugar." In fact, when my Russian cousins and other immigrants
arrived here over the course of the past 20 years, I was surprised to
see how many family habits came >from a more general Russian (or at
least Russian-Jewish) culture.
