Dreidel, or 'sevivon' in Hebrew means 'to turn around.' Dreidels have 4 letters on them and they stand for the saying 'Nes Gadol Haya Sham' which means 'a great miracle occurred there.' In this spinning game, Nun means 'nothing', Gimmel means 'everything',
Hey means 'half', and Shin means 'put in or pay.'
This is my one year 'blog-o-versary'...thanks to everyone who visits and comments, it means gimmel to me.
