Once a year, on the eve of a certain major holiday, a well-fed man of good cheer delivers toys to children everywhere. OK, maybe it's not exactly a major holiday. And yes, if you want to be nit-picky about it, they're not toys, they're tchotchkes. And perhaps it's not so much children everywhere as much as it's all of the Jewish children that he can reasonably visit in one night.

Who is this mensch, who, by the way, is a little verklempt that you are always discussing how he is-or-isn't just like Santa Claus? Why, it's Uncle Reuben, and he's a Hanukkah legend.

Oy gevalt Santa in a Hanukkah book? Uncle Reuben brings joy to Jewish children on Hanukkah, so it is inevitable that he will be compared to St. Nick. In Hanukkah With Uncle Reuben: Not Santa but Not Bad, we learn how the mensch in blue is nothing at all like the man in red. Kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy the irreverent humor, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" rhyme scheme, and vibrant, detailed cartoon illustrations. How does Reuben stack up against St. Nick? You'll have to read it to find out
