Jews on Christmas

washington_square_arch2smThere is a long standing custom amongst American Jews to eat chinese food and go to the movies on Christmas. We, however, have broken tradition and celebrate Hannukah tonight with the in-law sibs. (the picture above is from the bro-in-laws terrace. not a bad spot, huh?)

We had a traditional Hannukah dinner of…

Steamed lobsters and clams. 

Wait, not so kosher right? But they were delish. And for the vegetarians amongst us we ordered the chinese food so as not to seem like we were straying too far from the norm.

Tomorrow, our big fat Italian christmas with the best skinny girl cook in the zip code, Joanne. Can’t wait.

Happy Festivous to one and all.

  1. What a great view! Sounds like a nice night. Our family hung out and had dinner with 4 of our closest friends & their families. She made bourbon slushies! Everyone had a great time. However, once we got home and settled, one of my boys vomited all night. Sort of changes the Christmas Day plans, don’t you think?

    Enjoy your big fat Italian Christmas. Sounds wonderful!

  2. Sounds lovely Amy. Enjoy!

    What better way to compliment an Italian girl than through her cooking!! I love that – “the best skinny girl cook in the zip code!”

    I hope it was as good as anticipated. (I just had a little lasagna for breakfast. It doesn’t make me a bad person.

    Leftovers at my house tonight (on paper plates, of course) and then maybe a movie!!
