one time back when my parents were first living together/married, my mother woke up in the middle of the night to see my dad reading a book. this was WEIRD, ok, my father never ever ever reads books. and so she was like “wtf, are you reading a book?” and he was like “not really. it’s an airline schedule.” and it was. It was an airline schedule that he had stolen from the Lufthansa check-in counter at the airport when nobody was looking. he’d just snuck back there and taken it. and then used it for bedtime reading. and that’s just about the most quintessential story of my dad I have ever heard. strange & impulsive petty crime + airline schedules being his idea of entertaining reading material.

I’m just... really not a fan of taking every single american christmas tradition, painting it blue and silver, and calling it a hanukkah thing. I just saw a picture of “hanukkah gingerbread houses” and it’s just like... that’s. that’s a christmas thing. that is not a hanukkah thing. Hanukkah sweaters and hanukkah wreaths and it all just feels like people are still just trying to tell me I should actually want to be celebrating christmas, and they’re helping me get around all those inconvenient religious limitations that are obviously preventing me from doing so against my will.

listen. no. I don’t want to celebrate christmas. I don’t want to celebrate extremely-thinly-veiled!christmas either. HOW IS THIS SO FUCKING INCOMPREHENSIBLE.
