Santa Claus is Jewish!
Sandra Klein was playing with her 3 five-year-old friends in her family’s playroom, one snowy winter’s night.
“Sandra”, her friend Kim said,” how come your house isn’t decorated for Christmas? You don’t even have your TREE up yet!”
“Yeah”, said Judy, “you don’t even have MISTLETOE hanging over your doorway or pretty tinsel on your windows, or nothin’.”

“I AM NOT!” Sandra protested in a loud voice.”Mommy and Daddy and Me are JEWISH! We have our OWN kind of Christmas. It’s called ‘CHANUKAH’ and we have lights and presents, too. So don’t tell me I’m being silly. My holiday is JUST as nice and special to me as yours is to you”, stated Sandra proudly.
“Well, YOUR holiday doesn’t have a SANTA CLAUS, does it?,” Kim asked with a little sly grin.
“No it doesn’t, Kim”, said Sandra, “but the teacher said that SANTA CLAUS is a friend to EVERYBODY; he’s EVERY RELIGION AND EVERY COLOR. He doesn’t just give presents to good girls and boys who only celebrate Christmas.”
