Is it inadvisable to send Christmas cards to your Jewish friends?
You see, I have like FOUR Jewish friends I typically send Christmas cards to. Just as a way of saying “You’re family and I’m thinking of you during the holiday season.”
But the other day one of those friends told me to save the card and give her a hug instead.
Which brings up the question. . . do Jewish people find it irritating to receive Christmas cards during the holiday season?
I wouldn’t want to offend but I’m seriously confused about the whole deal.
I wrote “Happy Hanukkah” on each of the cards.
And I bought a special Star of David sticker for the card as well, just so they know I’m not a TOTAL IMBECILE and I realize that they’re not Christian.
But maybe I’m not supposed to send a holiday card at all.
Or MAYBE I’m supposed to get a special Hanukkah card for each of them.
THAT actually may be the PERFECT THING to do.
It’s only out of sheer frugality that I send my customized CHRISTMAS card to my Jewish friends.
I’m horrified that I may have been inadvertently offending my Jewish friends for all these years.
What are your thoughts?
