Conversations of Yore

So how was your holiday? Did you enjoy Christmas?

I don't celebrate Christmas, I'm Jewish.

What do you mean?

I mean I'm Jewish. We don't believe in Jesus.

Oh really? So who do you guys worship?

Barbara Streisand.

apparently thou doth tire of it. some where along the line, folks forgot we had other religions here. we are so busy keeping relgion out of public places, that i wonder how others are supposed to learn. problem is though, they all seem to want christian displays, but ya show them something else and i bet they will flinch. my tired brain will think on this one.

By any chance, were you visiting my hometown in Wisconsin when this conversation happened?

Sorry, but I always laugh so hard at that conversation. You'd think that Jews were new to the USA or something.

Here is a conversation with a friend while at the mall during Christmas time

Her: "I remember every year we would come here and sit on Santa's lap and get a picture taken"

Me: "We never did that in my family"

Her: "Really? What kind of mother doesn't take her kids to see Santa?"

Me: "A Jewish One!"

Ick, I'm sorry you ended up with that conversation. I wouldn't think that you'd get that one as much all the way up there as I do down here. Obviously, I've given too much credit to the neighbors and friends of my New York relatives.

Haha, this has connections with that I've written on my own blog. I got 'hunted down' the other week by people I work with, saying that I should celebrate xmas because I live in a 'Christian country'... And it doesn't matter that I am Jewish, 'all Jews celebrate it, so why don't you!?'.
