  1. This post again. The whining and kvetching is endless. Christmas is a secular holiday now. Get some friends and family and eat drink and be merry with them.

    • He could also easily convert to Christianity, which, unlike Judaism, encourages converts. And, according to him, has better food.

  3. Hipster Jews are out of luck this holiday since this place on University Pl has closed for a lack of business. It didn’t even last a year since its debut.

    Did Eastern Asiatics do anything that caused its demise, because the owner (who is not Asian) was adamant about “clean” Chinese food which offended many of them? It hurts more than the bamboo ceiling.

    Ok, what, who's this again?

  4. Aren’t Chinese restaurants open? I realize it’s prole food but still…

    • I once entered this place in Lion’s neck of the woods not because I wanted to eat in there but for the respect of the other person’s wishes.

      Needless to say, it makes me cringe and croak when I see pieces of pricey grease and smelly soy sauce called dim sum.

      http://timhowanusa.com/

      Jumbo sized meatballs slathered in heavy tomato sauce with spaghetti (which is prole) is repulsive enough, but this type of food is barf.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

  5. My Sikh parents celebrated Christmas with gusto when I was a child and despite them being elderly and me not visiting them at Christmas very often, they still do. It probably helps that they live in a mainly white, blue collar town in rural BC. Christmas for me in Vancouver is an entirely different affair. The city doesn’t offer a fraction of the charm that the small towns of my youth had. Though I must add that most people seem happier and nicer during this time, even in soulless Vancouver.

  6. Christmas is getting more and more just a “holiday”. I look for Christmas photos in December for my volunteer contribution to a blog. The photographers are all different ethnicities. Lots of Indians (from India) taking photos of Christmas lights. “Holiday lighting” is a typical description.

    The decorations themselves usually have few Christian features as far as I see.

    One surprise is the spectacular lighting in Moscow, especially Red Square. The big church on the square is not decorated (I’m not even sure if it’s functioning as a church).

    There are two women who take especially good photos of the lighting for Instagram.

    A friend who grew up in the USSR told me the Communists pushed the line that the celebration was for the New Year. The captions on the photos usually don’t mention Christmas at all. So even Russia would pass this political correctness test.

    Vienna did put up “Merry Christmas” on their light display.

    • Electric lighting is relatively new thing in Russia because the Communists were mostly prohibiting it, so people still genuinely enjoy the light shows, unlike here in the North America. The same evil Communists moved Christmas to a different day of a different month to really confuse things up.

      My 2¢

      December 23, 2019 at 2:01 AM

      • Russia was really slow about accepting the Pope’s calendar fix. The UK didn’t change till the 1700s.

        The Russian Orthodox Church is still on the old calendar so Christmas is in early January.

        Frau Katze

        December 23, 2019 at 2:38 PM

      • Another thing I’ve noticed is that women from former Communist tend to dress in a sort of sexy way. They’ll wear tight boots, high heels and short skirts. Western women don’t usually dress like that.

        Could it be a reaction to Communist drabness? I’ve noticed it not just in photos but also in person, with women now living in Canada.

        Frau Katze

      • Pontic steppe women dress sexy because they are super competitive aggressive Alphas. It is in their genes. They are important vehicle that helps to spread their race during peaceful periods. Men do it during violent periods.

  9. I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but a couple of months ago I started a new job, working at an Extremely Large Online Retailer’s fulfillment center located on a particular island often mocked here for its prole-ness. Three overnight shifts a week, 6:15am-6:45pm Thursday-Saturday, which counts as full time for benefits purposes. The lengthy drive from Long Island and the (obscene) tolls on the Verrazano are tolerable because it’s normally just three times a week. Oh, and it helps that the pay is very good, my hourly rate is 2x what I’d been making at the Major Home Improvement Retailer back in Suffolk.

    In any event, I was there about a month when the dreaded Christmas “Peak” rush began. It was horrendous, all sorts of overtime extra days that meant I was there at least six hours a day for almost 30 days in a row, not to mention a vastly sped-up work pace. Now that Peak finally ended I’m loaded with aches and pains and utterly exhausted. You can imagine what that does to my opinion of Christmas. Yes, I made a *lot* of $$ with all that OT, so I guess it was worth it. I guess.

    Oh, one more thing, the workforce (3,000+) at the fulfillment center is overwhelmingly minority, I’d say 85% or more. I wonder why.

  12. Just leave America and go somewhere else, you seems to suffer too much from trivial things like other people holidays. I have never seen anyone who is so bothered by Christmas and I know a lot of Asians, Jews and Muslims who don’t celebrate it. Nobody is taking it so seriously.

    The problem with Jews in America that they had it too good and that’s why they all developed various strains of neurosis, Jews need some adversary to keep their mental state balanced.

  13. EVERYONE is depressed on Xmas, and all of december really.

    It’s that goddamn loss of daylight savings time causing it to turn nighttime at 4pm.

    DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME SHOULD BE THE ONLY TIME. Changing the clocks is insane and probably some conspiracy to fuck people up.

    • Murkaproles are out and about buying junk for the holidays in the malls and big box stores while the highways are flooded with vehicles for holiday getaways. Hardly a time for depression for happy go lucky proles.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

      December 23, 2019 at 11:01 AM

    • Who’s depressed? It’s a gorgeous day outside and love is tangibly in the air. I see happy people, or normal people. Nobody is depressed.

      December 23, 2019 at 1:58 PM

      • And of course Yakov has every reason not to be depressed. He makes a good living in his trade. He doesn’t chase status. He has a firm belief in G-d. And with successful progeny he’s already won the evolutionary struggle. I think of him as Yakov the prototype. And no, I’m not being sarcastic.

      Yakov

      December 23, 2019 at 6:03 PM

      • Yakov,

        Lion is much more of a typical American Jew than you are. My experience is that all of the remotely observant ones have at least a small chip on their shoulder about Christmas being better than Hanukkah. At Christmas this gives them a great chance to complain together, which I thought was important for all Jews, but maybe less important for Russian Jews??

        If you don’t believe me, watch this movie written by, directed by, and staring American Jews.

        They’re way more obsessed with this than you can imagine.

        MoreSigmasThanYou

        December 26, 2019 at 3:53 PM

      • Because it sucks when you’re a kid and every other kid gets to wake up to presents on Christmas morning, and you don’t get any because you’re Jewish.

        And part of the tradition for Jews in America is to do nothing celebratory at all on Christmas to prove their Jewishness, making it a miserable day for children.

      • A lot of Eastern Asiatics, Hindus, and Muslims don’t celebrate X’mas as well. So Jews aren’t the only ones who are left out on December 25th. In fact, it would be worse for a male specimen from any of these demographics who don’t celebrate X’mas.

        If anything, Hanukkah looks festive and is welcomed by the mainstream, while gentiles who aren’t White do not have a holiday in their calling around this time of the year.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

        December 26, 2019 at 5:15 PM

      • @Lion It must be even more irritating to learn that many Christmas customs are adaptations of old pagan customs. The Christian missionaries (who would not have existed without Judaism) left customs alone, provided they was not forbidden by Christianity. They were being realistic.

        They put religious glosses on things where they could. In Sweden, Christmas is still called Yule (the name of the pre-Christian celebration). The word is found in all Germanic languages.

        The early Protestant reformers, who wanted to go by the Bible alone, were hostile to Christmas and Oliver Cromwell announced it was just another work day. They were suspicious of music too. But in the end, they did not prevail, outside of a few sects.

        Christmas trees were a German tradition (no doubt pagan). They became popular in the Anglo world after Queen Victoria put one up. (She was married to a German).

  16. Is it Chinese food or movie first? Some people prefer food first, some movie first. What is your preference? I always prefer food first because movie is an euphemism for making out. A girl’s reproductive instincts turn on by a shared meal.

  17. I am glad you didn’t post my previous comments that on réflexion was too sad despite my not being sad at all.

    I remember a kind neighbor who said he was obliged to spend most of its time off with Chidoukh, arranged meeting in vue of Jewish marriage.

    The girls he met were quite pretty – lots of red hair – but not available for long because they would marry in less than a month. So that was a big effective market. He was unmarried in his 30ies and as he was intelligent and good looking, everyone from his community was worried there were something wrong with him.

    I remember he said he didn’t like girls dressed in black with long dress and very pale skin, but that was the offer. He married eventually. He decided to work in NGO for the community at the same he managed his parents 3 hotels in Paris ex-Jewish area. He had a PhD in math but decided (rightly) not to continue. I heard he is quite happy.

  18. NYT has an article by a woman who gets seasonal depression. But she’s from a Christian backgrounders so there is no advice for dealing with Christmas per se. I did note:

    I do what I can to volunteer, to donate to help those who have less, whether in possessions or access to opportunities. Wracked with anguish over family separations, I hosted a charity 5K to raise money for refugees and immigrants, pushing my son in a jogging stroller, his easy closeness a contrast to those who are bereft.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/20/well/family/finding-light-at-the-darkest-time-of-the-year.html

    Idiot virtue signalling. I bet any money she ignored these separations in the Obama era. Of course, so did NYT.
