  • Diaspora Jews: Rosh Hashanah begins tonight. We don't get any allotted time off to celebrate, so we need to take vacation days or make special arrangements to observe it. There has been no lead up to the holiday in the media; no tv movie specials, no holiday music, no seasonal Starbucks drinks. We do not decorate our houses for everyone to see and store clerks have not spent the last month telling us to have a good holiday. But nevertheless, it's actually one of the most sacred and important days in the Jewish calendar and we're all really looking forward to celebrating.
  • Western Christians: Okay...that sounds fake, but okay.
