Preparing for WarThat’s the buzz. Folks wishing you “Happy Holidays!” are not actually expressing their hope that your festive season will be joyous. What they are in fact doing is undermining Christianity and Christian values in America. Well, at least according to folks like Bill O’Reilly and others pissed at inclusiveness and the War on Christmas. The thinly or not so thinly veiled message is “First they killed Christ. Now they want to kill Christmas. Damn those Jews…” I just shake my head at the stupidity. Clearly, the French do not have a monopoly on narrow minded xenophobia. Which makes this blog post so odd – Neil Kramer, a Jew (duh!) going on and on about Andrew Krucoff’s adventures in Jerusalem, how the notion of cool Jews is dumb and then segueing into his take on the War – he’s pro-Christmas. I think. Whatever. read it, it’s funny. Or disturbing. I can’t figure it out. Also in the category of funny/disturbing is American Apparel’s 12 Days of Hanukkah Advent Calendar. OK, I get the point – pull on the date and save money on t-shirts or socks or jackets or whatever. I know American Apparel is very important, but what’s with the Hanukkah thing? It’s not even Hanukkah yet. There are 4 days of sale items left so hurry over and Save! Save! Save! A portion of the proceeds will be used to sponsor Krucoff’s Bar Mitzvah! Just his Bar Mitzvah though, not his briss. Thankfully, it seems that Avraham Baruch Krucoff already had a proper briss – certificate and all! I think I better shut up now. Those anti-histamines are kicking in and I am the highest I have ever been in Jerusalem so far.

Happy Holidays!
