- Hi Bev,
I very rarely respond to postings on this list, but I think we need a little
understanding here. Many people on this list do not have English as their
first language and I think we need to realise that to write in a foreign
language takes great courage. Many people who do have English as a first
language do not follow the conventions I was taught regarding spelling and
grammar. I am sure Elias meant no disrespect by not capitalising Jews,
Lithuania, English, Christmas or his own name.
Best wishes to all, whether you are celebrating Chanukah, Christmas,
something else or nothing at all!
