Jewish Girl Seeks "Goyfriend" for Christmas
Why does one Jewish woman date Christian men around the holidays? To get her Christmas fix.

Two and a half years ago, I met the perfect match: My boyfriend Dave has a Jewish father and a Catholic mother, but he was raised a Jew—bar mitzvah and everything. Their family has always celebrated both Hanukkah and Christmas (and Easter). Not only that, he also happens to be tall, blond-ish and blue/green-eyed. We've spent the past two years celebrating Christmas with his parents and extended family in New Jersey. This year we have plans to attend a Hanukkah party with close family friends, a Christmas Eve "Feast of the Seven Fishes" Italian dinner with Dave's sister-in-law's family, and finally, a Christmas Day meal at his aunt and uncle's house. We'll also drive up to Connecticut for a few days of Hanukkah gift-giving with my family. Dave's religious and holiday tendencies aren't the only reasons I love him, of course, but surely they are a component of our compatibility. 

This past summer, Dave and I moved into an apartment together in Santa Monica, California. My menorah and candles are currently stored away in a kitchen cabinet, but they shall make an appearance alongside a small "Chrismukkah" shrub soon. It will be strange to do my holiday shopping in 70 degree weather near the Pacific Ocean. Then again, maybe listening to a little beach-side Bob Marley at our favorite neighborhood Jamaican joint Cha Cha Chicken could parlay into an excellent New Year's Eve tradition
