Jewish Christmas Traditions

Christians view Christmas as a holy celebration. It’s not as sacred as Easter, but it is certainly bigger! Those who don’t view themselves as particularly religious are happy to join in the fun with the not-so-sacred trappings of Christmas: Santa Claus, a tree in the house, lights, and especially gifts. Jews, not so much. To many, the secular parts of Christmas are still symbolic of someone else’s religion. So, what is there to do on Christmas? The traditional activities are explained in this article I posted at mental_floss.
