I've noticed a number of my Jewish FB pals mentioning that, like good Jews everywhere, they were eating Chinese food on Xmas.

I didn't.

Does that make me a bad Jew?

Nope. Likely it means you couldn't find Chinese food, or more likely you have a wife who can cook far better then any chinese food resturant.

Or she wasn't in the mood to cook Chinese food. Italian, instead, yesterday, and turkey/stuffing/potatoes tonight.

Nice. Especially the soup. Especially since it's raining here, outside, now, again.

Bad Jew. No fortune cookie.

I actually hate fortune cookies; taste/texture/message. I'd much rather have the orange slice, or some red bean ice cream.

Or ginger!

You could always buy a frozen Chinese dinner and heat it up at home. Really, be creative!

There are Chinese restaurants open in London on the 25th of December, but I'm down in the New Forest where they're closed. (Oh, and they don't have fortune cookies here neither. :)

We had goose for dinner last night and it was yummy.

We go out for Chinese food after the Christmas Eve service, and the place was very busy and filled with good Methodists and weary last-minute shoppers.

Speaking as a goy(?) still trying to figure out what's what in many religions not my own, and thus with no authority at all on the subject?

No. Not so far as I can tell.

I ate pork-filled Chinese dumplings on Xmas. I am a bad Jew, Christian and Buddhist.

I'm also a fairly lame pagan.

From what I've read, you tend to eat a very eclectic menu, and that raises you on the "adventurous" scale.

As long as you're not out breaking the covenants of your discipline, I don't see any discrepancy to complain about. In fact, I think it's good! Variety is the spice of life, after all.

Well, I DO fail on the covenant scale, but I don't eat much from the pig except for bacon...and I do eat most shellfish. No catfish, though.

It makes you a Jew who was well-fed on something else. :)
