Please understand I am NOT anti-Semitic toward Jack Benny, his family, and anyone of the Jewish faith. My question is Mr. Benny and his cast often referred to Christmas (including buying Christmas presents and greeting another by saying, "Merry Christmas!")and Easter, yet I believe he was Jewish. Did he use Christian holiday references in order not to offend his non-Jew listeners, sponsors, and the network(s)? Thanks!
