Christian dating a non christian what to do

24 Jun

There’s a difference between leaving a tradition and never being inside it in the first place (and still being expected to comply). If you want to patiently and sincerely explain that #Not All Christmas Lovers are like that and you would never, ever do this to a Jewish coworker, this is definitely a day to practice being quiet. These writers are great references for anyone looking for a great read from the religious genre.

Moderation Note: People I’d most like to hear from in comments: Fellow Jewish folks who can give the Letter Writer comfort, humor, and solidarity in coping strategies.

Not only do I have my own holiday to celebrate that is much less stressful thank you very much, I really hate the constant pressure to observe someone else’s holidays.

How can me not celebrating YOUR holiday ruin it FOR YOU?

Eleven months out of the year, this is a non-issue. I feel like all month I hear an unending barrage of “oh but it’s really a secular holiday so it’s fine if you participate!

” and “you’re really hurting my feelings/ruining Christmas for me if you don’t participate in my tree decorating party/secret santa/whatever! I DON’T WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANYTHING CHRISTMAS RELATED IT MAKES ME VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.
