A silly take on religious differences,

This review is from: The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story (Hardcover)
The small, square, hardback is a great book for families of all religions to learn a little about Hanukah and the importance of understanding different cultures, but it's just as skewed and wicked as the other Lemony Snicket titles. Holiday lights, a candy cane and a pine tree just can't understand that not everything is about Christmas, especially a little potato pancake. The flashing lights say that the latke is basically hash browns, which go great alongside a nice Christmas ham.
Finally the latke finds some kindred spirits: a Jewish family who understands him so well, it eats him.
