  • I celebrate Christmas and last year i celebrated Hanukkah also. I sometimes visit a Messianic jewish synagogue and they celebrate the feasts/holidays of the bible.

  • abellvalerie..i don't think that ibelongtojesus was trying to be rude. perhaps she has never seen its spelled the way you spelled it. kinda rude to assume she was intent on being rude, IMO.
