The Benefits Of Being A Jew At Christmas  

This year Hanukkah and Christmas have a major overlap. Hanukkah runs from sunset on December 20th through sunset on December 28th. While there is a song about the 12 days of Christmas, it’s primarily the 25th that’s celebrated. On some continents the 24th is the big day.

Despite there being 8 days of Hanukkah, the focus this time of year is on Santa Claus, Christmas trees, and nasty food like fruitcake and eggnog. What part of the egg exactly is the nog, anyway? Even though they fall at the same time of year, Hanukkah is really over-shadowed by the big fat guy in the red suit with his reindeer.

7 Great Christmas Gifts For Men

It’s that time of year again. The time women everywhere bite their nails wondering what to get their guy for Christmas. It starts when we’re young. We have no idea what to buy our fathers for Christmas. They always say, “I don’t need anything,” which I have learned over time is just their way of trying to take the pressure off.

Truth be told, fathers do like getting gifts, but they are so difficult to buy for, so they’re often stuck with practical gifts like tube socks, underwear, ties, cologne and soap on the rope. I remember when I was about seven years old I made my brother a pair of sunglasses from red and green cellophane and black construction paper.  I’m sure he really appreciated those!

Every man is different, so there’s no such thing as the perfect gift. The most important thing is that you put a little thought into it.  If you really want to show the man you’re dating that you care, and even your father for that matter, here are a few awesome gift ideas that the men in your life are sure to enjoy:

KINDLE FIRE: Whether it’s the sports section, biographies or Stephen King’s latest masterpiece, most men like to read. The new Kindle Fire with full color 7” Multi-Touch display and Wifi is only $199 and was released just in time for the holidays. If that doesn’t fit your budget, or is simply too much flash, try a Kindle touch for only $99.

7 Tips to Getting Your Girlfriend a Great Christmas Gift

There is nothing worse than watching your girlfriend open her gift and give you a fake smile as she says “Cool, thanks” and tosses it aside.  Okay there is one thing worse. She could say “What in f@#k made you think I’d want a toolbox for Christmas?” and storm out of the room. If your girlfriend is dropping hints about needing repairs done around her apartment, you’re a real tool if you buy her a toolbox. What she is saying is “it would be really great if you could fix my leaky faucet for me” not “I’d love a Black & Decker drill set for Christmas.”

Here’s a simple shopping suggestion: Listen to what she says and pay attention to what she wears.
