What's there not to love about a taffy mezuza and a dreidel steeple? ;)

Yech. I hope some gingerbread cossacks burn it down.

There's a house on Monterey Blvd in San Francisco (Ed G ... it's btw Portola & 280 on the east side of the street) that looks way too much like this place. Wayyyyyyy too much!

A Jewish friend decorated her house with electrical garlands, to the dismay of her mother. But she chose blue and white garlands instead of red and green, for a Jewish touch. She justified the garlands by saying that December is so dark and dreary that one needed a little cheer and celebration.
