Hello, my name is Jamie Peck, and I am a Jew who loves Christmas. More
Single this holiday season? Awesome. More
Everyone on my holiday gift list this year is getting a box of tampons. You’ll thank me later for it. More
Walking around the various shopping centers during the holidays is not fun: they blast Kenny G’s Christmas carol covers for hours on end, every check-out has an insane line of loud complainers on cell phones and there are always children with tears streaming down their faces. Do you ever get so stressed out that you wind up buying yourself a present? More
As an atheist Jew, I take Hanukkah very seriously. And by “take Hanukkah very seriously,” I mean “enjoy getting good presents.” Here are some things you should not, under any circumstances, get me for Hanukkah. I hope you’re taking notes. More
These days, everyone from your grandmother to mine is getting all tatted up (for the holidays*). Sleeves are a mainstay of the Florida geriatric community, and your local bingo night now features special prizes for the lady or gent with the sluttiest tramp stamp.
But that’s neither here nor there, because what I’d like to show you is a gallery of some of the best holiday-themed tattoos on the web! More
Yes, Hanukkah is almost over (happy Night Seven!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t start preparing for next year. (In fact, it’s in keeping with the way we Jews roll — as soon as one meal is over, it’s time to start talking about the next.)
And that’s why you should begin saving your gelt for this amazing menorah, by Shlomi Shillinger. More

I have to say – this Taio Cruz-inspired song is way better than listening to your rabbi drone on and on. Also, the guy in the middle with the glasses is kind of hot. More
The good part about Hanukkah is that it lasts for eight nights, which means if you procrastinate on your gift-buying you can order something online and still ensure it arrives in time for the holiday. Might we offer a few suggestions? More
It’s the holidays, right? And that means not only buying gifts for your friends and loved ones, but having your friends and loved ones buy you gifts as well.
When you were a kid, maybe you drew up a color-coded list of all the toys you wanted, from Barbie to G.I. Joe to beanie babies or whatever. And at that time, you were just so adorable with your little list.
But you’re not five anymore, and you don’t depend entirely on your parents for money unless you’re in high school, and maybe college. And as such, drawing up an unsolicited list and sending it to your family is greedy and childish, and I think you should stop. More
