A Jew who loves Christmas time and isn't afraid to rant about it!

Back story... I have grown up celebrating Hannukah and Christmas.  I am jewish and had a bat mitzvah, but I also celebrate the traditions of Christmas with my mother who is not Jewish.  Since I grew up celebrating both, I think that is why I love this time of year so much.    I would like to take this holiday cheer and bath in it for approximately 6 months.  Ugh, I love it!  And this year... in our new home...we have a fire place!!!  I mean, really?  What says Holiday Cheer like a fireplace?  NOTHING!  What brought on this sudden burst of excitement for the holidays you ask?  Well maybe it is because we picked up our Christmas tree todayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!  I am stating here, that my favorite smell of all time is the smell of a Christmas tree.  I must say though, that we do not have a Christmas tree at the moment, we actually have a Hannukah bush!  A lovely melding of two holidays, the Hannukah bush is a Christmas tree decorating with blue, white and silver.  Holiday excitement is in full effect, which means if you are looking for me, you can find me
