I kept trying 'shock', despite struggling to get it to fit with the love clue, because discharging static electricity produces shocks as well as sparks.

The love definition of spark comes from the fire definition, rather than electricity - it sets something alight, rather discharges rapidly.

That would make sense. Hava Nagila is the name of the song to which you dance the hora.

Aug 16, 2018
Can I make an appeal, as one who has attended a lot of Jewish weddings, to also accept "Hava Nagila" for "hora"? I know that the hora can be danced to anything, and many ethnic enclaves around the world have their own traditional hora songs, but in the US, Canada, UK, etc. amongst culturally-assimilated Jews, not to mention in Israel itself, I'd challenge you to find a hora danced at a wedding in the last 50 years that was NOT to "Hava Nagila".
+1
Level 73
Aug 17, 2018
I understand what you are saying. I've never been to a wedding where the hora wasn't danced to "Hava Nagila" at least once, but it's a little like saying "The Blue Danube" and waltz are interchangeable and besides hora is a lot easier to spell.

Not sure where you've heard that djm. Half the reason we have separate international football and rugby teams is because a lot people would identify as one of those before saying they are British, try calling the English national team "Britain" and you'll get a lot of angry Scots telling you that you're wrong!

You may be thinking of Brits getting annoyed when a tourist uses "England" to describe the entirety of the UK, because that's erasing the national identity of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (however the same could be said for always using British even if you're only referring to England). If you're specifically talking about English people (which the rest of the UK would be happy about in this context, because it means they aren't being accused of not understanding the difference between Holland and Netherlands!) it's fine to say England.

+1
Level 74
Feb 14, 2023
But @duckwantbread, @djm did ask if we can "just call the UK England", which is clearly wrong and insulting and horrendously embarrassing for all involved.

As for Holland/Netherlands, I'd argue it's a bit different because so many people across so many countries and languages have long used "Holland" to refer to the country of the Netherlands (e.g. 'holandia' in Spanish). Even the Dutch government's tourist website does: www.holland.com caters for trips all over the wonderful country of the Netherlands.

In a chain quiz though, accepting only the answer with the correct first and last letters makes sense.

Hated the roman and greek mythology questions because cupid/eros is only the child of the goddess of love, venus (roman) or aphrodite (greek).

They are both sometimes referred to the gods of sex and desire, but 'Love' in itself is probably a topic too broad for a singular god/goddess.

Level 70
Feb 14, 2023
It represents a bridge of love which connects heaven and Earth in the Celtic culture. It's also associated with love songs where it is often used. (Sources e.g.: https://www.invaluable.com/blog/symbols-of-love/#:~:text=In%20Celtic%20culture%2C%20the%20harp,to%20higher%20states%20of%20love, https://parenting.firstcry.com/articles/magazine-20-romantic-symbols-of-love-and-their-meanings/)

Some dodgy stuff here:

A dove is more commonly seen as a symbol of peace rather than love (although I grant these concepts are related.)

Eros and Cupid were the gods of EROTIC love, sex and attraction - hardly the same concept as that espoused by Aphrodite / Venus.

The inclusion of Rihanna is completely unfathomable. Eh???

The harp as a symbol for love is also tenuous,(despite your sources) being used instead primarily as a motif in religious art.

And finally, don’t be fooled by the whole Wallis-Simpson charade. King Edward VIII was openly supportive of Hitler and the Nazis, even going so far as to suggest mass bombing to bring the population of Britain to the negotiating table. He was under constant surveillance from British Secret Services throughout the late 1930’s as an obvious threat to security. So nothing to do with love then.

Apart from all that a lovely quiz…
