Christmas In WordPressville

by Ben Hoffman

I’ve been reading some blogs this morning and it seems that Christmas doesn’t stop the flow of venom. It’s just another day to hate, fear, and lie. Evidently, people can separate politics from their other life where they are loving and “compassionate.”

Like most people, Christmas doesn’t have any religious significance for me. It has even less meaning because I’m Jewish, but my wife is Christian and we celebrate the holiday. Her family comes over to our house every year for a turkey feast and enough deserts to start a diabetes epidemic. It’s the one day out of the year when everyone in the family is together. While some of the in-laws can be a bit difficult to deal with, it wouldn’t be Christmas without them.

Blogging wouldn’t be nearly as much fun if we all agreed on the issues, so I thank those on both sides of the aisle for participating in our discussions. And thanks to all those who just stop by to read some of the posts.

So on this day, I’m wishing everyone on both sides of the aisle a Merry Christmas!

  3. Mr. Hoffman,

    So are your kids raised Jewish, Christian or Atheist?

    I bet I would get along well with your in-laws. I bet you would get along well with mine. 🙂

    • We celebrate the Jewish holidays, but more to celebrate the Jewish heritage than as worship of any deity.

      [I bet I would get along well with your in-laws. I bet you would get along well with mine.]

      One of my brother-in-laws is a big fan of Che Guevara. ’nuff said. 🙂

  4. Mr. Hoffman,

    You’d still get along well with my in-laws.
