How did she not know? All the signs were obvious.

*sitcom like flashbacks*

"Hey honey, want some pork chops?"
"No thanks, I don't eat pork because I'm Jewish."

"Sweetie, why is your penis like that?"
"It is circumcised because I'm Jewish."

"I love you! You're so funny! You should be a comedian!"
"Thank you. It's because I'm Jewish."

Not necessarily, 41. I have friends and relatives who consider themselves culturally but not religiously Jewish.

You'd think the fact that he didn't have Christmas decorations up already would have been a hint that he doesn't celebrate Christmas for whatever reason, though.

54- Why does the fact he not have Christmas decorations up matter? The only "Christmas" thing in my house is a hummingbird ornament for my mom. Sitting on top of the unwrapped gifts we are taking with us to go celebrate Christmas with family.

We have a tree and ornaments, they are in the garage. Lack of Decoration isn't proof of Celebration.

83, I suspect OP would have taken your small decoration as a sign that you hadn't decorated enough and would have tried to rectify the situation by putting up lights and a tree for you. My point was that OP should have noticed that that her boyfriend didn't have decorations already when most everyone else had theirs up December 1st, if not earlier, and concluded that he wasn't into it, or just asked if he did anything for the holidays.

89 my house has no decorations. We leave that for the malls and the houses that leave theirs up all year long! Come Christmas day we might drag an old lawn ornament in, like a sleigh, to hold the gifts, but doubtful. We're not Jewish. Just lazy.

#89 Talk about generalizing. My family started putting up Christmas decorations yesterday. Just because "majority" of people do something, doesn't mean a particular person has to be a part of that group.

That is true. Many of my Jewish friends love the idea of putting up a tree. Also, decorating a tree doesn't necessarily have to be associated with Christmas. It's just a symbol of the holidays in general

#31, some don't talk about their religious background unless you ask them or they tell you themselves. I never mention mines because people can be very judgemental whether if you're an atheist or religious person.

Could be he's non-practicing. Like doesn't do everyday religious stuff, but celebrates the holidays. Sort of like people who never go to church but still celebrate Christmas.

In that case, it could just have never come up and if they've been dating less then a year, OP wouldn't know.

Well you can assume that if a man says he wants to date you that he's at least romantically or sexually interested in you. So yes, it would be safe to assume he is straight (except when he cries and says he isn't)
