    I haven’t even heard of this special before today, and it’s the only one I can think of outright with one moral involving the kid not getting the toy she expected, but finding contentment in the one toy she didn’t expect but got anyway. That’s a pretty positive outcome and message, compared to more specials where the kid is unhappy not getting the expected gift, but somehow always gets the expected gift in the end with nothing really learned or appreciated. Also decent to hear another kid suggesting to enjoy Christmas more by cutting back on the hassles involved. Alas, I wasn’t a kid during the time back when this was on…

    Nice to see you back in full swing, Miss Q! I saw the review of Most Evil, too; haven’t seen the show and I’m sure I don’t need to if it’s all about stats in immorality instead of immorality itself–I should’ve said that there. Woops.

    But why must they be *rotten* eggs?

    Your point about Hanukkah is astute, but don’tcha think it’s possible a Jewish kid might get angry in the way the show depicts if a Christian friend snootily said that her own holiday was more important? Logic about relative importance of the holidays in each religion doesn’t necessarily play into emotional reactions when someone (especially a kid) feels like her religion is being slighted! The anger of hurt pride is often the result, Ms. Weird Al! 😉

      That’s very true. I was just trying to put in my two cents about the stereotype that Hannukkah is the most important Jewish holiday. Thank you for watching!

        Yer welcome — after I wrote the above I realized at the end of that statement you actually said she was right that Hannukkah actually would mean more to that girl than Christmas. Oops!

    Great to see you back, Yulia! And here I thought I was the least observant Jew ever.

    • FullofQuestions1

      If you’ve had a Bar Mitzvah, you’re more observant than me.

      • TheScottCSmith

        I have not. Nor a Bat Mitzvah!

        • FullofQuestions1

          Well then! My family lights a menorah on Hannukkah, and we sometimes go to Temple for Hannukkah or Sukkot, but other than that, we eat bread during Passover, we eat on Yom Kippur, none of us have had a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, I’m the only person in my family who doesn’t eat pork or shrimp (but only because I’m a vegetarian), and I only know an ounce of Hebrew.

            You sound like me…Happy New Year, Yulia!

    Ah “Arthur”… That was a cool childhood Christmas. I miss “The Garfield Christmas” (Not to mention the “The Night Of The Meek,” or “Peace On Earth” or “The Muppet Christmas Carol”). Damn…
