Christmas Eve Reading Material

Every year I receive questions via comments and or email about what Jewish people do on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Since it is not our holiday and holds no religious significance for us many of us view it as a secular holiday that we can use to do fun things.

Many years ago some friends and I decided that we wanted to go to Disneyland on Christmas because we were sure that there wouldn’t be a single line for anything. Boy were we wrong- that place was packed.  It was jammed full of people and busier than ever.

Back in my single days it wasn’t uncommon for their to be big parties that were cleverly called, “The Matzah Ball.” One year I went and got three telephone numbers from women I thought were quite attractive, wasn’t I surprised to find out that none of them were Jewish.

Anyhoo, this year we are going to be heading out to a Chanukah party but I know that some of you will still find your way here looking for things to read.  Far be it from me to prevent your intellectual stimulation from taking place. In fact I’d like to help stimulate it by providing you with several links to some old posts you might have missed.

And if that isn’t enough you can always  read the story that is over here.
