My husband and I since having children have decided to approach the day cautiously and Christ centered. We don't have a tree or lights, but we do have a Nativity (the "Little People" one since our kids are so young ) Our tradition so far has been to go to Church Christmas Eve, come home to a nice meal, read the Christmas story, and the kids get one gift each. When the kids are older and are more understanding we've talked about celebrating/forming new traditions around Hanukka (sp?) instead. In fact, I think it would be neat to observe every Jewish feast in some way with my kids. Even though most Jews are blind to it, Christ is centered in every one of those "holy days".

To be fair, the Christians consider Jesus to be another manifestion of the Jewish God - so any religious Jewish religious holiday featuring Yaweh would in effect, be featuring Jesus.

sounds like a sympathizer of one of the several branches of "messianic jews", another evangelical mission

...you know, until the last line this didn't sound so bad. ALMOST sounded open-minded and like she was remembering that Jesus was Jewish anyways.
Just wondering, but how can a Jewish holiday (bearing in mind Judaism is the oldest of the 3 Abrahamic faiths) be Christ centred if there were Jewish feast days before He was born?
