Another Bad Idea: “Chrismukkah”
This has been in the Post several times over the last couple of days:
From the site:
What exactly is Chrismukkah?
Chrismukkah may be celebrated from the 1st night of Hanukkah until Christmas Day. This year, Chanukah begins at sundown December 7th, and therefore Chrismukkah lasts 18 days! Chrismukkah is all-inclusive and non-judgmental – Saints and sinners, naughty and nice, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, straight and gay… all may celebrate without guilt, obligation or self-consciousness. All are invited to “Spin the Dreidel” under the mistletoe. On a more serious level, Chrismukkah can help teach children of mixed heritage about rituals from both sides of their family. Most of all, kids (and grown-ups too) love Chrismukkah because there are 18 nights of presents!
They do seem to be half-kidding — but come on, y’all know where the “Chris” in “Chrismukkah” comes from, don’t you?
Though in one way, I have to hand it to them. Chrismukkah is a true example of American ingenuity. We Americans are busy people. We don’t have time to piss on religious traditions one at a time! Do you know how long that would take? We’ve got things to do, places to be.
With Chrismukkah, though, we can piss on two religions at once. Multitasking! Brilliant! What a time-saver.
