Kris K, That's because this is not a Christmas(only) tradition. Its a Holiday tradition, and it takes place during the holiday season. Yes, like many, Christians have their holiday traditions this time of year, but there is no exclusive claim to every celebration in December being a Christmas celebration.
I applaud my Jewish friends for not sniveling like some chronic paranoid
every time Hanukkah is not directly mentioned in December.
Christmas is Dec 25th. The Holiday Season is currently running...All invited.
