Got to get my two cents worth in. In Yiddish (sp?) PUTZ (sp?) Yes it
does mean something derogatory. Betty

Another question ??
How is "PUTZ" pronounced?

U sound as in "He puts the book down" or "He putts the golf ball"

As a side note: When I was researching this word on the internet every
reference gave me a meaning that indicated a derogatory notation.
Nothing on Christmas. That is why I thought I had the wrong spelling.

Thanks for all the help.
