A Perfect Jewish Christmas

In 2012 we spent Christmas at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City. The resort was new and only lasted for a few years. It was a great place though while it lasted and this is a repeat of my post from 2012. Oh, and we didn’t win.

It can be tough being a Jew around Christmas time unless you have a Christmas Family. I was fortunate growing up and we always had a family that we hung out with at Christmas. We would get a couple of gifts, and give some, share in the meal and have a some time around a brightly lit Christmas tree. However, it is well known that if you don’t have a Christmas family then you can do two things on Christmas if you are Jewish.

1) Attend the massive Jewish meeting to discuss how we will control the media for yet another year.
2) Go to a movie and eat Chinese food.

It used to be when I was a kid everything was closed on Christmas, even gas stations. Not any more. We decided this year to up the ante and instill a new tradition by going gambling and eating in a signature restaurant so we are off to Atlantic City to revel in the new Revel Resort. So I won’t be posting for a while and if I win BIG, maybe a long while. Whatever you do, have a great Christmas. That’s right I am Jewish but can still wish everybody a Merry Christmas.

What is This Thing?

This sits atop the Revel Resort in Atlantic City. I know it changes color at night. A security guard told me that on Halloween it is a giant eye and that at Christmas it is a wreath. It looks like a giant golf ball to me. I put the giant gull in there just for fun, it is not a giant gull. If anyone knows what it is, please let me know!

Boardwalk at Winter

In the summer, the Boardwalk at Atlantic City is full of people, sunbathers and tourists. The Boardwalk and Atlantic Ocean are still there in the Winter but most people are inside gambling or getting spa treatments. It is beautiful at sunrise any time of year.
