Many like me that come from a mixed background have got to handle two family-get-together-and-overeat-till-you-plotz holidays these days. That wouldn’t be quite so bad (apart from the plotzing) if I didn’t have a few decidedly anti-Semitic family members. Now, since I’ve got an anti-Semitic and overall racist step-grandmother that fulfils all requirements typical of badly composed screenplays [which is by no way meant to suggest that all step-relatives are per se as if taken out of a bad film] and that is hard to go gift-shopping for in general (nothing that requires maintenance, catches dust, no jewellery as she only wears certain pieces, no electronics etc.), I had to get creative. It appeared to me that the step-grandmother never had a nice cookie platter (as little children we were not supposed to eat cookies at her place lest we caused crumbs) and that she also doesn’t bake cookies herself anymore these days. So she is getting a nice, crystal cookie platter this year with a bunch of chocolates and homemade cookies. I dare say I’ve added a little Jewlicious twist, but please see for yourself:
Merry Christmas to all our Christian readers!
