I found the following post by a 17-year-old girl on some internet forum:
I feel so left out during Christmas times :(
Everyone is so excited to see all their family and put up the tree and all the rituals. Ever since a young kid I've always been jealous. I've always wanted to celebrate Christmas but my family doesn't...we are Jewish so we celebrate Hanukah. Everywhere like the mall and a lot of businesses are all decorated with christmas this and christmas that and maybe here and there there's a small menorah but it just makes me feel bad. I wish I could buy that cool ornament and have a tree to put it on. My mom would like the stuff that in that stocking...but I can't give her a stocking. Does anyone else feel this way?! People are all like oh well snowmen are winter not just Christmas so you can buy those decorations but it's just like well they in red and green why aren't their any snowmen in blue and white?! Am I the only one this left out?!
