I received this bulletin today and thought I should pass it on in time to save
everyone the embarrassment of making passe, partisan holiday plan faux pas.

RE: Chrismukah


Continuing the current trend of large-scale mergers and acquisitions, it was
announced today at a press conference that Christmas and Hanukkah will merge.
An industry source said that the deal had been in the works about 1300 years.

While details were not available at press time, it is believed that the over-
head cost of having twelve days of Christmas and eight days of Hanukkah was
becoming prohibitive for both sides. By combining forces, we're told, the
world will be able to enjoy consistently high-quality service during the
Fifteen Days of Chrismukah, as the new holiday is being called.

Massive layoffs are expected, with lords a-leaping and maids a-milking being
the hardest hit.

As part of the conditions of the agreement, the letters on the dreydl,
currently in Hebrew, will be replaced by Latin, thus becoming unintelligible
to a wider audience.

Also, instead of translating to "A great miracle happened there," the message
on the dreydl will be the more generic "Miraculous stuff happens."

In exchange, it is believed that Jews will be allowed to use Santa Claus and
his vast merchandising resources for buying and delivering their gifts.

One of the sticking points holding up the agreement for at least three hundred
years was the question of whether Jewish children could leave milk and cookies
for Santa even after having eaten meat for dinner. A breakthrough came last
year, when Oreos were finally declared to be Kosher. All sides appeared happy
about this.

Fortunately for all concerned, he said, Kwanzaa will help to maintain the
competitive balance. He then closed the press conference by leading all
present in a rousing rendition of "Oy Vey, All Ye Faithful.
