• My sister's birthday. She's passed now.

      Oh. I guess that's also a holiday. What do you mean by passed. Her birthday passed? If she passed recently in that way, I'm sorry for your loss.

      She died a couple of years ago.

  • Yes. My husband is Jewish, so we celebrate both Christmas and Hanukah. My sister was born right after Christmas, so we celebrate that, too, though birthdays, of course, are not "holidays". By the way, we don't celebrate Christmas in a religious sense but simply as a cultural holiday, rather in the spirit of ancient peoples, most of whom, in colder climes, celebrated midwinter festivals and feasts of one sort or another. We celebrate Hanukah simply in recognition of my husband's heritage and traditions.
