Let me say right up front that I didn't ask permission to blog about this, so I am going to use a pseudonym for the players in this conversation.
Person Who For The Sake Of Brevity and Anonymity Will Be Known As Laura: My friends Mandy and Tracey were talking today about if it is allowed for Jewish people to have Christmas lights.
LuAnn: What do you mean 'allowed' like is it legal?
Laura: No, are they allowed?
LuAnn: Well, are they Orthodox or Conservative or ethnic/cultural Jews?
Laura: (Withering Stare)
LuAnn: Well, it is mostly a free country so you can do whatever you want. Mostly.
Laura: Okay how about if we put a menorah on our lawn?
LuAnn: Why would we do that?
LuAnn: Do you know what a menorah commemorates?
Laura: The 8 days of Christmas!
