Smells of the holiday season

Some of our Jewish rituals seem a bit strange, even to me. For example, some of us do "the chicken thing" before Yom Kippur, and on Rosh Hashanah we throw our sins into a stream.

But even if we had Christmas trees in Judaism, I doubt we would spray them with fox urine.

That being said, if we did indeed have Christmas trees in Judaism, we'd surely have a million other rules about how to handle them. (You've probably seen this before, but it's definitely worth re-reading: Laws of Xmas.)
