Grinch knows better than to mess with Hanukkah

Let’s face it. Lots of Jews love Christmas. Not in the celebrate-the birthday-of-our-savior way.

More in the pretty-lights, catchy-tunes, days-off-of-work, and eggnog-is-the-best-drink-ever-I-don’t-care-if-it’s-actually-made-with-eggs way.

Don’t forget TV specials like How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas, a time-honored classic.Christmas Specials

But such love can be confusing for young children. So Dahlia Litwack at Slate gives us, “A Jewish parent’s guide to Christmas specials.”

Litwack is movtivated by her five-year-old son’s astitute question:  “Mom, if Santa and Judah the Maccabee got in a fight, who would win?”

Tough call, kid.
