Coming off the heels of last year’s Tech the Halls holiday special, Douglas is all ready to kick off another great Christmas spectacular. Except Josh has another idea–and a contractual loophole to match–forcing a Hanukkah-themed holiday episode. Tensions aren’t the only thing inflamed in this episode; the holidays also gave us some holiday illnesses that we had to work through. Even so, this great episode features singing, dancing, Hebrew words, and plenty more to enjoy.
Check out the teaser ad for this episode for a preview!

Josh then takes to the interwebs to show off some explicitly Hanukkah-themed tech gifts, including:
- Best Buy “Go for a Spin!” Hanukkah Gift Cards
- LEGO Mezuzahs
- Keyboard Menorah
- Musical Light-Up Laser Dreidel
- Hanukkah Candy Canes

Finally, for this week’s Random Geeky Fact of the Week, Josh does his best to explain the secrets behind the scheduling of Hanukkah, for those of you who may have wondered why the holiday is at a different time every year. Douglas and Josh then reconcile their differences in the spirit of the holiday season.
