Christmas may be the most beautiful and festive holiday ever. It is impossible to deny that there is something special in the air. Every store, park… public place is gleamy with the spirit and glow of the holiday. So… why can’t Jews just get off their high horse and celebrate Christmas? Good question. This was the very question my Christmas-celebrating mother asked me over the phone only a few days ago. My only reply to her is that I thought about it and once you think about it, Jews can’t really celebrate the birth of Jesus. It is a beautiful holiday if you are Christian or even nonreligious, but for a Jew, I feel that something contradicts. That does not mean however that I can’t appreciate the fun and festivities, I just don’t really PARTAKE myself… And it certainly doesn’t mean I can’t post adorable vintage Santa pictures =) Enjoy.
