I Watched Lifetime's 'Mistletoe and Menorahs' and Hoo Boy Is It a Doozy

By

This year, the Hallmark Channel has gotten the brunt of the criticism for their lackluster attempts at two "Hanukkah" movies, which were, to put it kindly, disastrous. But it turns out we've all been walking with blinders on!! Because Lifetime just aired their Hanukkah movie Mistletoe and Menorahs, and it's... oy gevalt. 

I first became aware of Mistletoe and Menorahs when writer Dave Horowitz posted a truly shocking clip from it on Twitter. In the scene, the movie's main character, a very blond, very goyish toy designer named Christy (after Jesus Christ, no doubt) complains that she has to learn about Hanukkah before she has to attend a holiday party in eight days. The party is hosted by the guy she has to pitch her latest toy idea to, so obviously, she has to appear as a Hanukkah expert. But how ever will she learn all there is to know about this weird Jewish holiday in only eight days?!?!
