The War Against Christmas

So here I am reposting my Hannukah envy piece from a few years ago only this time there will be more images simply because I found more!  So it is rather upgraded.

And some, of these items come from sites that serve all holidays but we already know the Christian versions so I only post the Hanukah ones. So here we go again folks….

I included bakewear and a few other items after some thought because these are also traditional Christmas family activities.
