Chanukah isn’t the same as Christmas

.

As a Jew, my number one pet peeve is when people (that know I am Jewish) wish me a happy Chanukah on Christmas, as if it is an appropriate alternative to wishing me a Merry Christmas. The two holidays are not the same and most years, do not even intersect with each other, so it’s honestly an insult to me and my religion – especially when those individuals also don’t wish me a Happy Chanukah when it is the actual holiday. I don’t wish you a Merry Christmas during Chanukah, or Happy New Year on Rosh Hashanah. . .
