If you were wondering how recent converts to Judaism dealt with Christmas, look no further than this NY Times article. One said, "Everything just feels more tangible and in my face — I notice the angels when I walk down Fifth Avenue and feel a bit more disconnected. When I walked down Broadway, it felt like every pine tree had this strong scent, that they had just cut them. I had this moment of thinking, 'wow, this is not a part of me anymore."' But another reasoned, "I think it would be harder if I lived in Colombia, where everyone is doing Christmas. At least here, there is some kind of diversity. It is not as though everyone celebrates Christmas."
