Juliana Margulies, star of the CBS TV show The Good Wife, was David Letterman's guest this week on his late night show. The conversation was about holidays, and where and how she celebrates them.
Margulies says that her favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, and that she's responsible for hosting the day for her family.
When Margulies says that she and her husband get on a plane every Christmas morning, Letterman implies that it's an odd way to celebrate Jesus' birth. Margulies clues him in about Jews traveling on Christmas. She reveals her strategy for finding an empty plane, only to find that other Jews have the same idea.
We don't know if Letterman's apparent surprise at her approach to Christmas is real or a put-on for laughs, but either way, it's a funny moment.
