If you pray to the infamous Jesus Christ and were expecting Santa to slide down your chimney this December, keep your partridge in your pear tree, folks, “cause it’s not happening.
December 25, 2011 marks just the second time this has ever happened. The first time was on the 13th day of Abib, 33 AD, when Jesus Christ of Nazareth was allegedly killed. On this day, Santa decreed a clause indefinitely banning the rest of the Jewish population from the glory of his reindeer-guided gift giving reign of joy.

Those Jews love their Hanukah stories… We tried to locate Jesus for an interview, but in our research determined that he is, in fact, not real.
