Happy first night of Hanukkah, fellow members of Tribe! On that note, I’d like to take a few minutes to talk about Christmas. Christmas dinner specifically. Whether it was due to interfaith dating or a lack of funds to travel home for the holidays, I’ve found myself at a number of Christmas celebrations.

So you can multitask — light your menorah at sundown and scarf down a few latkes one night, head over to Christmas dinner another. Should you be invited for Christmas, you must be prepared, especially if you are the only Jew in attendance . After the jump, some tips for the Jew at Christmas dinner. Keep reading »

I suspect I’m not the only homebody out there, though, because now is the time of year when I hear people bitching about how ritzy New Year’s Eve plans (usually planned by someone else!) are making them go broke. In the spirit of not starting off 2012 with credit card debt, here’s some tips on how to plan your own low-key New Year’s Eve party that doesn’t suck: Keep reading »

Holiday hookups may be all the rage this season — you know, right alongside temporary boyfriends and desperate attempts to hang out under the mistletoe.
