Interpretations:Feast Of Lights

From This Might Be A Wiki

Estranged son[edit]

The story of a son who returns to his estranged family (You never write, you never call) for Hanukkah (this feast of lights). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:49, September 5, 2004


Is this song based on an episode of Friends? the one where Ross tries to teach his son about Channukkah - in Jewish tradition called the Feast of Lights. Ross's son (i think he's called Ben) "never writes and never calls", while at one point Chandler tells Ross to go "wander in the hall". All he wants is for his son to "please be nice on this feast of lights". There are a couple other less convincing points, but whatever. Just a thought i'd had :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:49, November 7, 2004


Seems like this song can be about a ghost. -Leonard Carrier 19:58, October 5, 2005

Interpretation 4[edit]

Sounds to me like we're hearing a song about a family that isn't exactly on good terms (The only thing we have is fights). From the perspective we hear this story from, this family member would like to see the family enjoy each others company, if only for a short time (We never get together at all/'Til the last day of Chanukah and There's got to be a change tonight/Please be nice on this Feast of Lights). - Almo 16:59, August 15, 2007
