This thing was so adorable and annoying that I had to share it with the whole world. You won’t be able to get the song out of your head.

Q: My friend won’t leave me alone about the fact that I’m Jewish but celebrate Christmas?

A: Christmas is not about Christ.

People give each other presents on Christmas. Is it to celebrate the birth of Jesus? Nope! It’s because giving gifts to celebrate the winter solstice has been going on for thousands of years.

People have Christmas trees during Christmas. Is it to celebrate the birth of Jesus? Nope! It’s because evergreen trees in the dead middle of winter reminded people that the cold season would eventually end.

People worship Santa during Christmas. Is it to celebrate the birth of Jesus? Nope! It’s because St. Nick had absolutely nothing to do with Jesus and simply represented the harvest gifts that would come once the winter ended.

So, why can Jews (atheists, Buddhists, etc) celebrate Christmas? Because humans have been doing it for thousands of years, and we’re not going to let the Christians claim what isn’t theirs!

My cousin just sent this to me, and MAN is it cool! What’s even cooler is that his house is the one on the right. :o)
