Thank you for your wonderful article. As I look around at all the Christmas decorations that have been up since BEFORE Halloween, I am reminded that Jews are a minority in this country. Christmas is beautiful, but for me, personally, it is irrelevant. At an event many years ago, a woman sitting next to me told me that she felt so sorry for me, that I didn't celebrate Christmas. I hold her not to worry; while Chanukah isn't marketed the way Christmas is, we Jews do alright. On the upside, as a Jew, I do have my own traditions: On Christmas Day, I eat Chinese food and go see a movie. I am also the go-to person at work, offering to fill in around Christmas when others are getting ready for their holiday or traveling to see family. It's good be Jewish!
