This Jew is in Texas. With her Jewish girlfriend celebrating…Christmas. It’s actually December 19th. I’m being smart and writing some scheduled posts in anticipation for my trip and the inability to get any writing done while I’m in Texas.
I have to admit, I’m feeling a bit excited about being near a tree.
M’s mother converted before marrying M’s father so there’s an entire side of her family that celebrates Christmas. While I’m very firm on a No Christmas Trees! I’m excited to have the opportunity to admire one. I’m excited to have Christmas dinner. I’m excited to sing some carols and I’m excited to open presents by the tree!
M didn’t grow up with a Christmas tree in her home, but always went to her grandmother’s home to open gifts from Santa. One one hand I feel remorseful that our children won’t get gifts from Santa…and on the other it’s nice to know that they’ll have them at my parent’s home and Inshallah at M’s grandmothers.
If you celebrate, Merry Christmas. If you don’t see a movie and enjoy the Chinese!
Let’s take a poll-Who’s celebrating Christmas today and who’s eating Chinese and going to the movies?
