Then you'll have to make it at home. The closest your going to get is kosher Empire chicken at the Harris Teeter on Raeford Road.

Say hello to Rabbi Eichenholtz for me.

But on your comment I hit a strange situation today. I was shopping in a place out of town known to sell hallal goods. Upon finishing the payment at the register the person said "Have a Merry Xmas". It was not an expected salutation. So I responded with, in Arabic, "May the coming year find you in good health". The cashier nearly fell back as they understood the response as I left the store (I know the owners, so I just need to think about telling them about it or simply let it go to hope the cashier learned not to judge people on how they look)



I decided to put in a link so others would understand what I stated to Woodrow:
Surat An-Nisa' [4:86] - The Noble Qur'an - ?????? ??????
Why can't a Jew or Muslim acknowledge another person's religious holiday? That's like saying that my Christian friends cannot wish me an easy fast on Yom Kippur or acknowledge Rosh Hashanah by wishing me a happy New Year? What is wrong with wishing someone a Merry Christmas in December, regardless of your religious affiliation?

A "holiday" created by a felon who was in prison for kidnapping, rape and torture of two women. I acknowledge Kwanzaa as a "holiday" to the same extent I would acknowledge Festivus.

Do they celebrate by pouring bleach down the throat of women and burning them with soldering irons? I mean, that was what the creator of the "holiday" was doing time for when he came up with Kwanzaa.

Growing up in the South, I only heard Merry Christmas and Happy New Year exchanged among Christians. The generic "Happy Holidays" is a creation of the recent past when the PC police found it necessary to equate Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanzaa as equal events and thus was born the "one-size-fits-all" greeting of "Happy Holidays." I have never in my life wished anyone "Happy Holidays," in lieu of "Happy Thanksgiving." That seems a real stretch in my book.

I have always wished people Happy Holidays, which I learned growing up in the South (even though my family were often the only non-Christians other families had met).
