When does Hanukkah “season” begin?

It’s not like Christmas–the season’s beginning is clearly marked at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade when Santa is wheeled out on his styrofoam sleigh promising every gentile child they will get the presents of their dreams if they’re good girls and boys. It’s official–everyone go and buy stuff now!

But what about Hanukkah? When do Jews start feeling in the mood for this holiday? When do those green and orange boxes of Manishewitz products start to look appealing? I want to open a forum for discussion, but we don’t have our message board up yet. This buys you all time to think about it…
