One of my neighbors was putting up Christmas lights this evening. As I made my way to the mailbox, I complimented her on how pretty they were. She smiled and told me thank you.
She then grew the biggest smile and sweetly wished me a happy Chanukah.
Now, I am not certain why this neighbor of several years thinks that I am Jewish. Perhaps it is because I used to decorate my bushes with blue lights and had a white lit tree. Just always thought it was pretty. Perhaps she overheard me telling someone about a DNA test that said I am 12% Ashkenazi.
At any rate, her being so considerate and sending her warm thoughts across the yard was the biggest highlight of my day.
I smiled back and said thank you.
