Tree Menorah by Sahar Bastry

I really love X-mas. Notice how I spelled it there?
I don’t celebrate Christmas because I’m not a Christian, and I don’t believe in Jesus and all that stuff, not that there’s anything wrong with it. But because I don’t, I’ve decided that I celebrate X-mas, a time for giving presents and decorating trees and being with the people you love.

But my boyfriend Jeff is Jewish. So my desire for a X-mas trees clashes somewhat with his menorah. Or at least he thinks so. He wants us to celebrate only Hannukah, but there’s no way in hell I’m giving up my stockings and X-mas lights. But I think I may have found a happy medium for us.

Designer Sahar Bastry has come up with the Tree Menorah, a cross between everyone’s favorite holidays. I couldn’t find this on her site anywhere (maybe I’m blind?) but I would totally love to get one of these. Although, it would just end up on a table next to a giant, well-decorated X-mas tree, haha…

Update: My mom found it online for $25.
