    I don't feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves. -John Wayne (-9.00,-8.86)

        Adopting A Bubbe And/Or A Zayde? Action For Post-Soviet Jewry

        Many people suffer from Christmas Seasonal Disorder.

        I myself love Christmas. I love all the colored lights and even if it's just one prettily wrapped gift.

        I love to give to others all year long. Whatever I can of course.

        My Mother was Irish and my Father Jewish. I am the youngest and by the time I was growing up most of my Father's family was gone. So with me, we celebrated Christmas.

        I'd heard of stories about my Grandfather giving Hanukkah gelt to my older Sisters. And then at Christmas they would demand a Christmas gift from him too (he lived with my Mother and Father). But that's all I knew except you get 8 gifts one for each day.

        btw, movies like It's A Wonderful Life are called "tear-jerkers". They were made to make people cry. So you might want to stay away from them since you are so sensitive to them.

        Really, I've seen It's A Wonderful Life every year for the past sixty years. If you've seen it a couple of times (as great a movie as it is), you've seen it all.

        ♥Happy Hanukkah♥
