Jewish Christmas–alone

This year is one like no other. It makes sense, then, that the holidays would be different this year too. I come from an interfaith background, my dad’s side celebrates Christmas and my mom’s side celebrates Hanukkah. Though, it would be more accurate to say that we all celebrate together.

However, the pandemic has thrown a wrench into my usual plans this year and I wound up being alone on Christmas Day. Check out my latest article for Alma on what it means to honor my interfaith background and find my own traditions:

I should get this out of the way first. I’m Jewish and I celebrate Christmas. No, not “Jewish Christmas” or “Christmukkah.” Christmas. My dad’s side of the family is Christian, though certainly leans towards secular.
