Merry Christmukkah, happy holidaze, and all that Jazz.

So, how do people celebrate Christmukkah?

I'm genuinely interested, because inter-faith and inter-cultural unions are common in my family and we have a special way of dealing with the holidays.

Mira,

Well, we just light the menorah each night, and open present each night. And we also wake up on x-mas morning and open a bunch of presents too.

It isn't all that hard I guess...

Sounds like fun!

Though I must admit I don't know much about how Hanukkah is celebrated traditionally... Or Christmas in western Christianity, for that matter.

Mira,

Hanukkah is celebrated differently depending on the religiousness of the household. I just light the menorah at sunset each night (or as soon as I can if I'm not getting home in time for sunset), say the prayer, and then open a present.

Christmas is basically just setup a tree, stick some presents underneath and open 'em on the morning of the 25th. Also there's a Christmas dinner, usually a lot like a Thanksgiving dinner.

It's pretty fun for me though since I get to celebrate both now =)
