I know a lot of people who are half-Jewish and half-Christian. Every holiday season they face a horrible decision: which holiday do I celebrate? Should I honor Christ’s birth? The resourcefulness of the Maccabees? Christmas or Hanukkah? WHO AM I?!
Worry no more, child of God. The Menorah Tree Stand will solve all of your problems!
It’s a giant Menorah into which you place eight 3-foot tall Christmas trees and one 5-foot tall Christmas tree in the Shamash spot.* Then you deck each tree out in lights, ornaments and place presents underneath each. On each night of Hanukkah, you turn the lights on in the respective tree and open the presents underneath. On Christmas morning you open the presents underneath the Shamash tree, regardless of how the holidays line up.
*The Menorah Tree Stand could be scaled down to a more manageable size if you don’t have 12 feet of empty space in your home.

I respect and admire Streeter. He’s a super talented comedian and a great friend. This, however, is the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard.
