It's an extra day off work to enjoy some Chinese food, a movie and relaxation.
No, I'm not sad that I don't celebrate Christmas.
No, I've never been sad about it.
No, we don't put up a Christmas tree.
Nope, not even a white and blue one.
No, those are not intended for the "Jewish families to celebrate Christmas" as so many people have tried to convince me.
Yes, I do eat Christmas cookies when my friend Stacy makes them.
Why? Because they're delicious and if there's one things Jews do celebrate...it's delicious food.
Because we do not celebrate this holiday, there are some things that I will never understand. And will always need to phone-a-friend to explain the reason for various Christmas traditions. Just because I don't celebrate the holiday doesn't mean I should be ignorant about it's meaning.
Last night...the phone-a-friend Stacy was brought in to explain the meaning of Carmen Christmas.

And the most recent "Thing I don't understand about Christmas"
Why might someone want to decorate their toilet like Santa or Mrs. Claus? I mean, sure, it's a good deal, 60% off. Woo hoo. But I don't really want to dress my toilet us as anything but...uh, a toilet. Seems like it does a pretty good job just as it is. As a white porcelain bowl. I don't think Santa wants what is goin' in there.
I'm just sayin'.
Maybe I'm missing something.
