One of my first colleagues that turned into a good friend was a Christian woman married to a Jewish man. Seeing how they seamlessly managed an interfaith marriage was a beautiful thing. Every year when I send a Christmas card (and I do so without shame), I always wished her husband a Happy Hanukkah alongside her Merry Christmas.
A Sprinkling of Christmas, and Hanukkah. I made Christmas and Hanukkah cookies with a fabulous group of women friends. I try not to mix the holidays together, and I am not the least bit comfortable with the star-of-David tree-topper being marketed this year, but I think it’s kosher to let Hanukkah and Christmas cookies co-exist on a counter-top for a few seconds before they are devoured.
So to any of our Jewish readers, tonight I wish you a joyful Hanukkah season.
