In honor of Chanukah and Rosh Chodesh: A dancer does Hallel

I'm copying my response to WestBankMama's comment on a previous post, in the hope that you might find it a tad amusing and/or interesting:

"Here's a minhag that I developed quite unconciously, undoubtedly because I'm a dancer: One fine day in synagogue, in the middle of Hallel, I suddenly realized that, every time we sang the words "heharim rak'du ch'elim (literally, "the mountains danced like rams"), I would bounced up and down on my toes in time to the music, as if dancing. I have no idea how long I've been doing that. Tue Dec 19, 11:08:13 PM 2006
