    6. gerry from Valpo Says:

      In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it “Christmas” and went to church; the Jews called it “Hanukkah” and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say “Merry Christmas!” or “Happy Hanukkah!” or (to the atheists) “Look out for the wall!” – Dave Barry

    7. Tatyana Says:

      Gerry, I am trying to be a polite atheist

    8. Tatyana Says:

      Besides, [again and again]: Jews could be atheists and agnostics, not necessarily ascribing to Judaism the religion.

    9. Bill Brandt Says:

      Happy Hannuka, Merry Christmas, and Look Out For The Wall to everyone…

      Tatyana – you’re a character ;-)

    10. tyouth Says:

      Tatyana, A rabbi, a Jewish agnostic, and a Jewish priest go into this bar….

    11. Tatyana Says:

      Tyouth, didn’t I explain you the last time that “Jewish priest” is impossible in principle?

      Bill: I thought we all are, each and every one.

      Aside (Jon, please forgive the tangent): I was preparing my mailings for the upcoming New Year and realized I’m running out of stamps. Bought the only ones that remained in the USPS office: Happy Kwanza! My advance apologies to all recipients, please don’t be offended!

    12. renminbi Says:

      Ah,the Postal Service,always a day late, and a dollar short. Don’t they know that Kwanzaa is out of style now? Think they’re brown-nosing The One?

    13. Bill Brandt Says:

      @Renminbi – I remember reading the history of Kwanza – like Jerry Seinfield’s (more accurately George Costanza’s father) – Festivus )the holiday for the Rest of Us) – it was completely manufactured – in the late 60s if I am not mistaken.

    14. renminbi Says:

      Ron Karenga invented Kwanzaa in the sixties and the usual suspects then swallowed the bait. Ann Coulter did a whole piece on the Karenga,FBI,Kwanzaa connection.
