Okay, there are actually three articles here. The first is written by Mrs. Miller who is a Jew by patrilineal decent and married to a non-Jew. The Miller family celebrates both Christmas and Chanukah.

Eight Reasons My Interfaith Family Celebrates Christmas and Chanukah

Here is an article in response written on the Jewish Daily Forward's Sisterhood.

.Interfaith Mom is Wrong About Chrismukkah

And finally, Mrs. Miller responds to the criticism of her article on her own blog.

Interfaith Children: Born This Way

I found the articles interesting but I also found the comments revealing. I just thought some of you might be interested. I know someone has also addressed the second article on the interfaithfamily website.

geez..I thought I was confused. The responses are just off as they are about their own religion...which is basically xtian+pagan leftovers=upset stomach.

I wouldn't say they are necessarily confused, they just have different views.

Maybe the words i should use is "lack understanding"...hind sight now I get embarassed at how silly were the things I use to do as a xtian/messianic believer. As a former penticostal I would have blasted them on their heathen/pagan/blasphemous views. Then I would fake pray in tongues and try to cast the demons out of them LOL! I once tried an exorcism on myself when I was 12 because I was questioning my catholic upbringing and thought the devil was making me do it, then I was a born again xtian at 13 thanks to my Jehovah witness friends and my mormon bible I checked out of the school library, then my bff's in highschool were wiccans. So...confused...yes I was. Are they? A little bit. Its all good though, somehow we will all get there, some may purge longer than others. lol!

I have a friend who thinks this way. If she isn't talking about Jesus she's talking about the devil. She was always terrified she was going to burn in hell forever. I hope she's gotten over that part.
...
Anyway...there are a few points I understand within the comments but others...not so much.
