Thank You Countrylv22,

For including me in your warm greeting. I grew up in a neighborhood where there was Christmas but no obvious Hannukah. Little kid, didn't know or give it another thought, but enjoyed several nearby Jewish families as friends. Forward... My ex, her parents were German Jew and Polish Catholic. Her Mom had the concentration camp number tatoo on her arm - she had survived. I never knew them, they passed before my time. But our Christmas holidays always had the extra special "Nosh" table. Friends dropping in all day, "eat a little bit here, eat a little bit there" We were very "popular" among all the friends.

Now trying to return to church after several decades, I had found a book by Thomas Cahill in a used book store "Gifts of the Jews" I had recognized his name from an earlier book. I read this book as well as his "Desire of the Everlasting Hills" They were quite "awakening" I had not ever read religion as a subject of such scholarship before. To me it had always been "Jesus and the Twelve - Jesus and his Merry Men" comicbook like, like I had learned in the 60's.

I used to think that Judaism was something way over there, and that Christianity was something way different way over here. But during reading these two books I found how we are all so very close part of the same stream.

I have a menorah of tea lights candles as well as my colorfull outdoor Christmas lights. And love the traditions that are celebrated in this house.

Very Best Regards,

To All !
