In a piece now circulating on the Internet, Irwin N. Graulich, a Jewish ethicist says if not for the marketing of Christian holidays, "Chanukah would probably have gone the way of Shavuot, a more significant Jewish holiday which few Jews celebrate because there is no popular Christian holiday surrounding it."

We're supposed to be pleased that Chanuka's gotten all confused and mixed up with Christmas to the point that 99 percent of the Jews in this country think that it is "our Christmas?"

And this Jewish genius is sad the same thing didn't happen to Shavuot?

Perhaps a fisking tomorrow, if I have the strength.
