Merry Christmas! As a Christmas-Tree Jew, I like Christmas just as much as the next goy. But even Jews who don’t celebrate Christmas deserve credit for helping the world celebrate the holiday. In fact, my Christian friends, you may want to think about sending your Jewish friends thank you notes instead of seasons greetings cards. Here are some of the Christmas songs, films and major players brought to you by the Jews.
CHRISTMAS MAJOR PLAYERS
Jesus Christ! (The original birthday boy!)
Brought to you by his Jewish mother, Mary. Since we Jews always get blamed for Jesus Christ’s death, we should really get some credit for his birth!
Holiday Inn Directed by Mark Sandrich
White Christmas Directed by Michael Curtiz.
