The Hanukkah Ham!

It seams that a grocery store in NYC had a real deal in its deli section. Boneless Spiral Ham ($8.99/lb.) and Petite Smoke Ham ($6.99/lb.) advertised behind the glass as "Delicious for Chanukah". I applaud them for offering such a fine deal for the Jewish holiday. To bad they traditionally don't eat ham. Oops.

While I think it's a tad funny, I'm not surprised. People make mistakes, thing's happen. What does surprise me however, is that the women that initially noticed this. All she did, was take a picture of the ham, and post them on her blog. Really. That's all she did. She didn't get all offended and make a scene in the store. She didn't sue the store owners. She's not boycotting them either. O.k., she answered some reporters questions about it. But that's all! I'm pleasantly surprised.

It's nice to see somebody realize that other people make mistakes. Either they just didn't pay attention, and used the wrong tags, or they just didn't know that Jewish people are not supposed to eat pork. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all be that understanding? Maybe even see the humor in life?
