"Mama," says Saia afterschool one day. "Why don't we have a menorah in our house?"

"Well, babe, we're not Jewish," I begin, expecting to have to navigate through a very long and detailed explanation about religion.

"Oh, yeah," she says.  "Jenna is Jewish."

"Is she?" I ask.

"Yeah, and Charlotte is only half Jewish," she continues. "And half French."


"But Riley, you remember Riley, Mama?" she asks.

"Mm-hm," I say.

"She's the best...because she's half Jewish AND half Christmas."

I think everybody should be half Christmas, don't you?
