Christmas With a Parisian Jew
What better way for a lapsed Christian left-wing liberal lesbian to spend Christmas than with a Parisian Socialist Jew?
We met online about 12 years ago and met in person last year in Paris at the Ritz Hemingway bar. What an auspicious place to meet!
Because Hanukkah is hitting in two days and I'm picking her up at the airport tonight, we'll be doing the thing with the menorah, candles and the Baruch Hanukkah Schmonikka prayers. I like the idea of it, but she'll also be celebrating Christmas with me and my family.
If I don't post again, may all your holidays be sweet, and like Edith Piaf said, have no regrets.
