Vicariously Celebrating Christmas

Originally Published: 

Being Jewish, I’ve always suffered from a bit of Christmas envy.

Hanukkah’s great and all, but the lights and the store windows and the Christmas music always has me a little wistful for the month of December.

This year, though, I got to feel a little Christmas magic through the families on the receiving end of Toys“R”Us’ #NoWishTooBig initiative.

On behalf of the families, thank you so much, Toys“R”Us, for putting some magic back into the season.

And thank you, from me, for illustrating what Christmas is all about.

And for letting me celebrate, too.
