You may ask what is Chrismukkah? Well, it is really very simple. It is kind of blending both holidays of Christmas and Hanukkah into one.

Do reindeer have a religion?
People think more of it when both holidays fall on the same day or very close to the same day.

While the concept is not a new one-according to Ron Gompertz, author of Chrismukkah: Everything You Need to Know to Celebrate the Hybrid Holiday, German Jews celebrated "Weihnukkah" in the 1880s, with the German name for Christmas being "Weihnnachten"-it unquestionably rose to prominence in 2003 through its inclusion on the popular TV show The O.C. Characters on the show have continued to celebrate Chrismukkah every year, and the term has caught on among others around the country.

Think of all the fun you can have decorating for both holidays and all the food, trust me latkes go well for Christmas, they do.

Alfred: I can be Santa this year, while I light the Menorah.

You gonna light candles, so you might as well light the Menorah. I love decorating for both holidays in second life as well as in real life. Why do people celebrate Chrismukkah? There are several factors that might account for the popularity of the Chrismukkah concept. One might be a backlash against the increasing politicization of the holiday season, with people taking umbrage at tidings of "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays." The term seems to cry out "can't we all just get along?" Another might just be an indulgence in postmodern mashup fun. But perhaps the largest factor is the increasing prevalence of families with mixed religious heritage. Chrismukkah neatly solves the question of whether to celebrate Christmas, or Hanukkah, or both, or neither. Like mixed families themselves, it brings together elements of both worlds.
Snow can fall no matter what holiday it is. 

I do have some decor for Christmas and Hanukkah in the apartment for you to see, where you can search for the pickle. Just follow the sign to teleport.

The Basement Club has both decors for Hanukkah and Christmas and that is what I like.

With the holidays coming around the corner, I hope you enjoy your Chrismukkah. Or Hanukkah. Or Christmas. Or whatever you practice.

Stay safe
