Christmas Hanukkah Interfaith Family Holidays

Updated on December 30, 2014

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah

Christmas and Hanukkah are both beautiful holidays bringing together family and friends, dinners and parties, rejoicing and faith. They both offer a great opportunity to do some serious shopping and get some great bargains. They both are all about presents and gifts, home decorations and some wonderful family recipe holiday cooking.

Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas greetings are rooted in religion and steeped with tradition. It is a wonderful, glittery, hopefully happy time of the year and many families enjoy celebrating both holidays!

Families today are no longer only traditionally one religion, one color or one ethnicity. Today more than ever people are free to love who they choose and not just have to stay within the traditional values of someone of their own "kind". Years ago, many young people were disowned or outcast from their families if they chose to marry or raise their children different than their birth heritage.

Interfaith families are no longer rare and no longer taboo. Some families choose one of the religions to raise their children in, some parents choose to expose their children to both religions and let them learn and enjoy the teachings and holidays of both Chanukah and Christmas.

Families who celebrate both religions get to decorate beautiful Christmas Trees, light bright, shiny Menorahs and respect the miracles of both religions that are so different and yet so similar. Miracles of life, standing up for what you believe in, protecting and nurturing family and friends. Believing and having faith in believing.

Great gift idea for the holiday season, one present fits all!

Holidays are all about the children. Shiny faces filled with awe, excited about gifts and treats from the kitchen. Baking Christmas cookies with Mommy, visits from Grandma and Grandpa and the beautiful lights, decorations and cards that come in the mail.
