The Christmas/Holiday/Chanuka Spirit? (NOT!)
The month of December is always a special one. The thrust of Christmas and other holidays is that it’s a time to start thinking about the fact that we need to love others, are interconnected and perhaps focus deeper things than real and politically accentuated divisions. People are — at least for the duration of the holiday month — urged to put aside hatreds, stereotypes and demonizations. (After all there are 11 other months to harp on that.)
And some don’t.
