Rudolph the Jewish-American Reindeer

Friday, December 12th, 2008

A Jewish mother had “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” pulled from the kindergarten pageant, because it mentions Christmas. Jeffrey Goldberg responds:

Of course, the song “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was written by a Jewish-American songwriter, Johnny Marks. He also wrote “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.” Also written by Jews: “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire),” and of course, the mother of all Jewish-written Christmas songs, “White Christmas,” by Irving Berlin. Why, you could almost say there’s a conspiracy by Jews to dominate the Christmas-jingle-writing industry!
