The Cohens, a Jewish family, was on very good terms with their catholic neighbours, the O' Brians. In fact, little Yaakov Cohen and Chris O' Brian from next door would play together from time to time. Or at least they used to. Well, one late December's day, Duncan, the non-jewish father, came storming in to the Cohen's house holding poor Yaakov by the ear. "Your son is not going near my Chris again; he just has no respect for us and our religion!" "What's the matter; what did he do?" enquired Mr Cohen. "I'll tell you" said Duncan in a rage "he saw our xmas tree and started making fun." "Really, what did he say?" continued Mr Cohen. Responded Duncan sharply "he saw our tree and started asking all sorts of questions - what's the minimum required height? how near to the window does it need to be? do too many decortions render it unfit? what if it's under a neighbour's balcony?!"
