Christmas Season

Thanksgiving has come and gone, just like that, with the snap of a finger.

Now it is on to Christmas.

I’m Jewish. My father never allowed Christmas in the house.

We never had a tree. There were no presents.

The day would come and go like any other day.

Listening to Christmas carols wasn’t exactly on the menu- and Christmas dinner – well, what is that?

On the other hand, when growing up, I watched everyone else getting ready for the holiday.

Looked like an awful lot of fun from my perspective. About 20 years ago, I married a non-Jewish woman, an English woman, yes, from England.

She is absolutely non-religious and she loves to always say that she is a member of the Church of England – “The last thing the Church of England has anything to do with is religion!,” she often says.

For my wife, Christmas is about the tree – and we now have a great tree in our living room every year, decorated with 100 year old trimmings that were my wife’s grandparents’.

My daughters and their friends always have a party when trimming the tree.
