(vanity) Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah!
12/23/11

Posted on 12/23/2011 3:58:29 PM PST by Impala64ssa

Being Jewish I an not offended by all the Christmas cheer. To me it means in spite of all the serious problems out there, there is hope. And we can respect each other's religious and spiritual viewpoints and air and share, debate and argue our opinions WITHOUT any help from the ACLU, People for the American Way and esp. the gov't. So a heartfelt MERRY CHRISTMAS and Happy Hannukah to the staff at Free Republic and to all my FReinds here! Yes, even the trolls, lurkers and site pests, in the hope that they one day wise up and learn from the foolishness of their ways.

Being a Christian, I am pleased to wish our Jewish friends Happy Hannukah, as I remember that Jesus was a Jew. So Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah!

Totally agree with you! We celebrate Hanukkah at our house, but have no problem wishing others Merry Christmas. I'm sick of people who get offended at every stupid little thing....

P.S. Happy Hannukah to you!

Thanks! How refreshing.

Never in my life have I complained (or has it even occurred to me to complain) about a Menorah appearing in public, even on government property.

It’s just ridiculous all this bashing of Christian displays in public.

I join you in wishing others a Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah season.

All the best to you and your family.

And Jesus celebrated Chanukkah too.... In John 10 22-23b it says “Then came the Festival of Dedication [Hanukkah] at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple courts...” (NIV)

If I am a Christian,
and I say “Merry Christmas”,
it is simply me inviting you to enjoy the blessings of “my” belief.

If I am Jewish,
and I say “Happy Hanukkah”,
it is simply me inviting you to enjoy the blessings of “my” belief.

I have really never understood what the big deal is.

But, then, on the other hand, when it is my birthday,
I don’t wish for YOU to have a happy birthday...
So, I guess, I am sitting here arguing with myself about this...

The Judeo Christian Heritage bequeathed to us by our Founding fathers has made this country the greatest country on earth. Is important not only to understanding our past, but to securing our future.

As the arabs love to say, we are people of the Book...The G-d of Abraham, Issac and Jacob will prevail. I pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Happy Hannukah to you and yours!

As citizens who study the roots of our American system of self-government, whether as Christians or Jews, we must remember that the principles underlying our liberty are derived from Judeo-Christian ideas. They are centered and emanate from a conviction in the 1776 "American mind" (Jefferson) of a Creator who endows each individual with life, with inalienable rights, with liberty, as well as laws for their protection, under the sovereignty of a "Divine Providence" and "Supreme Judge" of the world.

These beliefs are encapsulated in our Declaration of Independence and are the foundation principles of our Constitution.

This is a season for celebrating our holy days, as well as our common heritage of liberty, as Jews and Christian--a heritage we proudly share with all.
