C is for Christian who lives in a tree

I'm sorry Jews. I've been very tough on you the last few days. I'll soon move on to the blacks or the Mexicans or the gays or the Catholics. But not just yet.

Today marks the first day of Hanukkah. A term which the Jews also confusingly call Chanukah.

The literal translation for Hanukkah is, OMG, we just killed God's son. Now Santa Claus won't visit us and our kids will have to play with dreidels instead of the x-box 360!

Chanukah's an event where the Jews burn candles and sharpen their horns over the course of 18 days and end it finally on the day of our Lord's birth with sacrificing goats and going out for pizzas.

Don't knock it till you try it.

Also...I was thinking... isn't it just the most ironic thing that Jesus died just when the days started getting longer? Jesus has great if his birth was the allegorical birth of Spring.
