I had decided that the bass player from my Irish rock band cartoon, Wizard(Jack) is half Irish and half Jewish. I thought his nose made him look like he could be part Jew, and my siblings totally agreed with me.
Anyway, his father is from Israel, but he moved to Ireland, was married, and then became a Vet for farm animals. When Jack was a little boy, his parents had an argument whether the family should celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah. His mom claimed that "This is Ireland, and in Ireland we celebrate Christmas. If you want to celebrate Hanukkah, you can go back to your mother in Israel." 😆 In the end, they made a compromise, and so Jack ended up celebrating Christmas and Hanukkah at the same time. His home was even decorated with decorations for both holidays.
Because of this, I drew a picture of him holding a Menorah in one hand, and a Christmas tree in the other. He is also wearing a necklace with the Star of David, symbolizing Hanukkah and a long sleeved shirt with a snowman, symbolizing Christmas.
Anyway, Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate it, and Merry Christmas to everyone else who celebrates it like I do. 🎄🕎
