… Why a Chinese Jewish Christmas?

The marvellous American-Jewish custom of eating Chinese food on Xmas Day has been around for more than 100 years, with many crediting this unlikely pairing’s origins mainly to a perfect storm of the close proximity of NYC’s Lower East Side Jewish immigrant community + their Chinese counterparts in neighbouring Chinatown during the late 19th-century; the kosherness of Chinese food; and a lack of other open eateries in the city on Xmas Day.

Here’s a great article on the subject if you’re interested in nourishing your brain w/ more fascinating factoids about the happy marriage between Chinese + Jewish cuisine!
