I find all this YID business very distirbing and not funny or fun at all. Let each holiday, Christmas and Chanukah speak for itself, irrespective of the other and to the respective faithful with whatever meaning they ascribe to them. Blending them in any shape or form mocks both.

Think you fail to understand the concept of "novelty". Nothing is "mocked" but presenting a different version for a more hip audience, tired of Debbie Friedman and Jews singing Christmas carols. Think outside the dreidel. :) Okay, I thought the Xnas vs Chanukah wargame was a bit much, but I am not a gamer. Those who are may love it. Many of these videos show a pride, love and the occasional tweak of time honored traditions.
