Get Creative with your Jewish Family on Christmas

Get Creative with your Jewish Family on Christmas

For Jews, the Christmas Day movie and Chinese food have become cliche—have you tried to get a table at Mr. Chan’s on Dec. 25 (“Oy Sauce,” Dec. 5, 2012)? This year, stay at home and get creative. Instead of watching “A Christmas Story” or any other Christmas schlock they’re showing on cable, watch some episodes of “Breaking Bad” to find out other cooking options around the holidays. You can also take it upon yourself to buy your own gifts, in case you didn’t get what you were dreaming of in the eight nights prior (Hanukkah ends on Christmas Eve this year). The internet still works on Christmas and you can go to any online store and get what you want. You can also listen to all three versions of Adam Sandler’s ‘The Chanukah Song,’ which makes all Jews feel less alienated this time of year. And if you’re still feeling alienated, don’t sweat it. Purim is just three months away. (Eric Blum)
