“I’m a Jew, a lonely Jew, on Christmas.”
These are the famous words of Kyle from South Park. Being a Jew on Christmas can sometimes be a lonely thing. However, times have changed a bit and these days I don’t see it as all that bad. There are actually plenty of fun things you can do these days.
If you are in the New York area, the MatzoBall® is an extremely popular singles event that has Jewish people from all over gathering to meet and party on the eve of Christmas. Any Jewish single should look at this as a golden opportunity to meet people. If you are not from New York there are likely events taking place in your neighborhood so do some research and check them out.
Another idea is to simply use this day as an opportunity to go out on a date. Everyone here is on JDate. I think it’s safe to say that this is the one day a year that you will know, for a fact, if the other person will be free on a certain day. So make a joke out of it. Have your first date on Christmas. See a movie or grab some Chinese food. There are plenty of restaurants open. Who knows, maybe you hit it off and one day you’ll have a great story to tell about how you met your partner of 25 years on Christmas!
