    Do you celebrate Christmas like Howard seems to?

    I was under the impressions that most Jewish people didn't care for Christmas...

    Is Howard representative of Jewish people (or human beings for that matter)?

    When I was little, we had a menorah and Xmas tree because my mom didn't want us to feel left out. Then the menorah broke and Hanukkah became just a memory.

    i'm a jew by blood, but was raised in a secular household. we celebrated christmas, not hannukah.

    i later married a jew who was raised in an observant reform jewish household--and we celebrate christmas, not hannukah.

    why in the hell would anyone who isn't religious want to light some candles and spin a dreidel when they can drink egg-nog and decorate a tree?

    All my jewish friends celebrate Christmas. They celebrate Santa, not Jesus.

    When I was about 14, I went over to my Jewish friend Ian's house in December. To my surprise, his family had a tree and it was decorated with lights, tinsel, candy canes, blue/white candy canes and Jewish themed ornaments. They did the Hanukkah thing as well as Christmas. I later found that a few other Jewish friends did as well.

    It was a shock at first, but then I realized that my family celebrated Christmas and my dad was a devout atheist and my mom was a Catholic by name only. There wasn't one crucifix or religious themed item in our house. On the tree, the only remotely "religious" thing we had were these ceramic camel ornaments that represented the three wise men...and they were passed down a generation. I don't think I had one single "Christian" friend who went to church ever or celebrated Christ on Christmas.

    Fun Fact......

    Stern once trashed all Jews involved in Christmas shenanigans.
    First he'd out them for changing their names and then bash them for their Birth of Jesus marble making schemes.

    Rather than do the 'guess who is the Jew' bit Howard just read a list of sneaky Jews that are hiding their heeb-ness.

    Michael Bolton......A JEW, Robin!!!!

    If Howard was a gentile, he's be the biggest anti-Semite that the broadcast world has ever seen or heard. He'd be bashing anybody not driving a Ford.

    My Jewish friends have a Christmas tree and let their kids open gifts on Christmas morning just like the regular humans. :c

    It's not like they are orthodox Jews either. I doubt he has been to temple more than 5 times in 20 years.
