A very Jewish Christmas

The radio show This American Life this week had a 15-minute segment that featured comedian Alex Edelman telling the story of how he grew up in a very Orthodox Jewish family and what happened when, for what he says were very Jewish reasons, they happened to celebrate Christmas one year.

It was absolutely hilarious. I couldn’t stop laughing.

    Conveniently, there’s a transcript.

    I like the disclaimer therein:
