An actual conversation:
Dude: Do you celebrate Christmas?
Me: I’m a Jew.
Dude: I know, but, do you celebrate Christmas?
(And this guy knows that my whole family is Jewish, so I’m definitely not of mixed-faith)
Dudette: Are you getting a little Christmas tree for your dorm?
Me: Nope, but I do have my dinky light-up menorah.
Dudette: Aw, cute. But are you getting a tree too?
Me: Nah, I’m a Jew, you know that.
Dudette: I know, but a Christmas tree is like an American thing, you know?
Me: Er, I thought it was more of a Christian thing…
Dudette: [sincerely and well-meaning] Oh, it’s fine, I get it, you’re Jewish.
Dudette: But even though you’re a Jew, you’re still gonna put up lights, right?
