Chrismukkah Gift Ideas

Updated on October 7, 2014

Celebrate the Holidays Together

Chrismukkah is the way millions of people experience the December holidays together... with elements of both Christmas and Hanukkah. While you won't find Chrismukkah on the calendar, it's as real as you make it. Chrismukkah is Santa Claus and Hanukkah Harry sitting down at the bar together after a long night's schlep with a Christmas ale and a He'Brew beer. Chrismukkah is a celebration of what we have in common, not what makes us different. Chrismukkah is a global mix of traditions from all the December holidays: Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa, Shabe Yalda, Bodhi Day... even Festivus.

Chrismukkah Spelling Bee

Chanukah is a transliteration of a Hebrew word, so you'll find it spelled Hanukkah, Chanukah, Hanukah, Hannukah and Channukah. Similarly, as a made up word, there are many spellings of Chrismukkah -Chrismukka, Chrismukah, Chrismuka, Chrismakka, Christmukkah, Christmukah, Christmakkah, Christmakah... Chanumas, Hanumas, Chrismahanukwanzakah.

The Chrismukkah Song Playlist

Christmas meets Hanukkah for millions of mixed-faith families-who deck their trees with Stars of David and spin the dreidel under mistletoe. Here is a one-of-a-kind, amusingly illustrated and endlessly entertaining guide to the joys-and oys-of celebrating Chrismukkah, the hybrid holiday. Now published in paperback, this handy (and often hilarious) lifestyle guide walks us through all the Chrismukkah events, history , and lore. You'll learn about hybrid holiday traditions in decorating (ornaments, wreaths, menorahs, dreidels); innovative tchotchkes (Chrismukkah cards, stockings, lights); and a plethora of menorah options (Godzilla or snowman, anyone?). Plus, the book includes rollicking games to play and songs to sing, along with easy-to-follow recipes for Latkes with Sugar Plum Fairy Sauce, General Saul's Chicken, Mama Mia Matzah Pizza!, Blitzen's Blintzes, and other Noel Noshes. Your yuletide happy hours will never be the same once you start mixing a Yule Plotz, Meshugga Nog, or Manishewitz Mulled Wine.

      Very interesting, I made my mother a CD with her favorite Jewish band The Maccabeats for Christmas.

      I usually go with Chrismakwanzakah (but judging from my search results, I'm the only one. Fail. This lens, however, succeeds. Fun and interesting. I enjoyed it. (Blessed)
