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.



Are you talking about in his office or in his home?

There's nothing in the religion forbidding people from having a tree in their home. Many do this and claim it to be a secular, seasonal celebration, but others frown on the practice and see it as a celebration of another religion's holiday.

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.

He had it in his home and, as well as I remember, Santa visited his girls.

What about the t*oth fairy? Do the J*wish folk go along with the program on that one or is Ab*l's little kid running around poo pooing on that also?

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.



So, any word to your kids about when it's approrpriate or polite to open their yaps, or do you just tell them to say whatever they want to whomever they want no matter what and Daddy will back them up?

G**d j*b, Ab*l.

Way to strip away one of the best childhood experiences a kid in this country can experience.

On another note, I went to a Jewish funeral a couple of weeks ago and it was one of the nicest, most compassionate, loving services I have ever attended of any kind. It's sad that shitheads like Ab*l are the only exposure that some people get to Jews and their behavior as a family unit.

Jon Lovitz was one of my favorites during that era of SNL. He also did a great "Master Thespian Santa."

We were in NY when Letterman was still on NBC about 100 years ago. We went to see his show and Lovitz was one of the guests. Verrry disappointing. Both of them. Then they had some kid on who was really good at math or something. Verrry stupid. Plus, at the time, Letterman taped the Top 10 list after the show. Verrry disillusioning.

We went straight to a world-class restaurant after the show.

Note to self: Add Christmas tree and Santa Claus to Nativity scene.
