New Jersey

December 6, 2017

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.
