This may seem unusual, but I enjoy Christmas as a non Christian. The beloved Rav Roov would probably tell you that salvation as commonly expressed by Christians originates in our faith. A true Christian understands Jesus as the fulfillment of the Judaic prophecies and not removed from them.
Many of the stories have appeal beyond the religious morals. My favorite is the Gift of the Magi by O'Henry. There is something all too human about young couples trying to make ends meet.
I remember growing up many of my friends did not like Davey and Goliath, because of the religious messages. Yet the stories were always well told and the message was pertinent. It is funny but many of those Fat Albert cartoons also had similar themes from Cosby.
Many of those on our trip wrongly assumed I would be hostile to Christianity. They probably got this notion from Commies who like to speak in my name while championing those who would kill Jews. The religious Jews, like Rav Roov, are happiest when people embrace their own tradition. The exceptions comes when these traditions like Shariah are Jim Crow like.
The notion of families spending time together and salvation resonate beyond Christians.
