Gotta Love Those Quaint Multicultural Traditions.

“Cari Luna is Jewish by heritage and Buddhist by religion. She meditates regularly. Yet when she and her husband put their Brooklyn, N.Y., house on the market this year and offers kept falling through, Ms. Luna turned to an unlikely source for help: St. Joseph.”


“Yet most home sellers favor the simpler three- or four- inch replicas -- most of which are made in China and often depict St. Joseph as a carpenter.”

Sounds like it was one Jewish Buddhist helping another.



Actually, that's how my mom sold the house I grew up in. She buried a St. Joseph in the front yard under the magnolia tree. Apparently, the next viewers made an offer.
