“The only thing that I know that for sure we’re going to do that we have always done is we’ll go to our church Christmas Eve service,” Huckabee said. “It’s a huge community-wide celebration, and we do that every year. And then we have an unusual tradition that after the Christmas Eve service we go out and eat Chinese food. Don’t ask me why.”
Asked if the tradition is intended to help him better relate to the Jewish community – who often celebrate Christmas with egg rolls and General Tso – Huckabee said, “No, it’s Chinese food.”
He was unaware of the Jewish Christmas tradition.
So he says.
