Grant Avenue, SF Chinatown“A traditional Jewish activity on Christmas is Chinese food and a movie.”
Not a bad idea if you're not Jewish, either.
Hollywood has timed the release of the Nativity Story to capture the spirit of the season. The film is family-friendly, with sex and violence alluded to or occuring offscreen. (Parents of young children may have some explaining to do.)
Even for infrequent worshippers or non-Christians, the narrative should be sufficiently compelling to capture one's attention. And there are plenty of historical and musical references to hold the interest of those for whom the story is very familiar. Recommended. © 2006 Stephen Yuen
