A question for my Jewish friends..
A girl in my son's kindergarten call today told my boy she was Jewish and didn't believe in Santa Claus because her parents said he wasn't real. It was tough for my wife to explain.
My question is, what is the common way for Jewish parents to deal with Santa Claus when talking to their young children?

"He doesn't come to kosher homes, Moshe."


Seriously, we were told he didn't visit Jewish houses because our parents were getting us gifts for Chanukah, and we didn't celebtate Christmas. Not sure it was that succinct, but that's the gist. Also, we were told to respect what the kids believed even though we probably found out the "truth" at a younger age.

I think the proper response is, 'You're a big girl now, ask your mama about the birds and the bees and don't tell you little brother about any of this shit'.

I have told my kids that there is no such thing as Santa Clause.

We got a call from my son's kinder teacher last year involving the same thing. His teacher (who is Jewish) said that my son told the entire class that Santa Clause didnt exsist. Of course this news was relayed to many parents by their kids and my son's teacher had to explain what happened.

On a different note, my daughter came up to me and asked "Daddy - what is Hannukah?" I told her that it was a Jewish holiday close to Christmas. She asked why we didn't celebrate it, and I told her "Because we're not Jewish".

She then told me she wants to try it to see what it's like. I told her I don't have a problem with it, but we don't know many Jewish people.

< humor>
I hope that 2nd paragraph is not a precursor to "other things" down the road that she "wants to try to see what it's like".

Shibui take her to a chanukah party at the JCC. She will get a taste of latkahs, chocolate gelt, and some other stuff.

Sheeit. Like she needs any more than I give her. Spoiled brat.

Actually, she enjoys singing "Dradel Dradel Dradel" and loves candles. She asked me to buy a Menorah so we could put it next to the tree.

Looks like she'll also be learning a valuable lesson in fire safety.

And after she chokes down that crap, she will never bother you about Chanukah or menorahs ever again.

Or, how about, "Mommy? Why doesn't Santa bring me presents? I thought he gave presents to ALL the good little girls and boys?"

The fact that Santa doesn't deliver presents to Jews is proof that they're evil, right?

I had a dentist that was Jewish and when he had young children they put up a Christmas tree. Is that something that's not allowed? Surely there's a better way than Ab*l's way.
