wasn't meant to be meaningful!

just a funny routine -- were you expecting more? Why?

Obviously?

I would tell him to avoid any Jews who claim that they "obviously" know anything more about yiddishkeit than he does.

Chill

Oh, just chill not everything is meant to be negative. It's just cute and funny. Take off your "I gotta be offended by anything hat". And just smile. And I'm generally known as a right wing Jew.

Sometimes there doesn't have to be a deeper meaning

I enjoyed this for what it is. A Colbert parody on the sucky sugar cane serious Christmas specials on television and Stewart trying to show that not everyone in the world is Christian and celebrates Christmas. If you think Stewart was shallow on Chanukah, then Colbert was equally as shallow on Christmas. Consider it a tie and just enjoy.
