December in New Jersey is my favorite because it’s when all the Jews come out to play. A New Jersey Christmas starts with a trip to the Loews AMC movie theater where we say “hello” to every other family who attends our synagogue. That’s usually followed with a snuggly stroll down quiet streets to admire the beautiful luminarias and culminates with a delicious meal at a Chinese restaurant. Christmas may very well be my favorite Jewish holiday! OK, Hanukkah is fun too, but nothing beats frolicking in the wintry wonder of snowy Jersey. For one night only, everyone is snuggled up inside with their Christmas hams and stockings while my family rules the streets.
