Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama on Thursday celebrated the Jewish holiday of Hannukah a bit early, holding a White House reception more than a week before the eight-day festival begins.
"We're jumping the gun just a little bit," Obama told several hundreds guests at the event taking place 12 days before Hannukah starts on December 20. "The way I see it, we're just extending the holiday spirit."
That is a "beautiful" dress Michelle – U GO GIRL!!!
I am so proud of our First Lady and her "sidekick" President Obama.....They are such an inspiration for all Americans!!!
The Lady's Dress is beautiful. Obama's 2012
This is for the Jewish vote only, purely political.
Under obama policies it is advisable for those of us of Jewish background to remember the root of Hannukah. And be prepared.
They are an elegant, beautiful couple able to successfully navigate in ALL social circles.
Very proud of our First Family!
