When I was a senior in HS I went to a Jewish friend's birthday party which was held at a restaurant. It was December and the music played over the loud speaker was all Xmas carols. We were all talking about which carols we liked when I realized that most of these girls were Jewish and had to listen to this music so much they knew the carols as well as I did.

That was sort of an A-Ha moment for me as far as what it's like to be a minority culture in this country.

You don't seem to have been harmed by being drenched in Xtian culture growing up, so that's a good thing! LOL How did you feel about it when you were a kid? Was your family religious?
