Unlike the author, I have not accepted the fact that my daughter has a Christmas tree in her home. At their wedding, officiated by a Rabbi and a Priest, they pledged verbally and in the text of their Ketubah to raise a Jewish family under the tenets of Moses and the Jewish people. I took these vows seriously. Obviously, they did not. So now I have two beautiful grandchildren. Will they be given a Jewish education? Only if I pay for it, I fear.

Your son and daughter-in-law are clearly respectful of you and your traditions. He must have learned tolerance, grace and love in his home even though you do not wish to share in other’s traditions or holidays.
I am Christian and my husband is Jewish. We celebrate both faiths/holidays with either families. My parents bend over backwards to be respectful of my Jewish in laws and their traditions, even sending them a Chanukah gift. It it however not reciprocated. I wish it was. It would mean a lot to me that my in laws could show respect as well. It wouldn’t hurt them to do so. It wouldn’t make them less “Jewish” and G-d most definitely would not be upset by a tolerant, loving gesture. It is nice to look at both sides and not just your own. While you may be uncomfortable, think about how much your daughter-in-law goes out of her way to be respectful. I am sure she would appreciate the same.
People are people. Family is the most important thing. Showing love and acceptance goes a long way.
