Interfaith Gift Ideas For Families That Celebrate Both Christmas And Hanukkah
December 24, 2016, is a unique year where both Christmas eve and the first night of Hanukkah align on the same night. This is only the 5th time that this has occurred in the last 100 years. Traditions exclusive collection of "When Holidays Combine" gifts are ideal for those that are looking for a December holiday gift for friends and families that come from different religions and celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah in their homes.

This gift collection has been specially curated by Tradition’s owner, Wendy Gordon. Her inspiration behind the creation of these exclusive gifts was at first the rarity of both the first night of Hanukkah and Christmas Eve falling on the same night and remembered what fun it was creating exclusive gifts back in 2013 when the first day of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving fell on the same night.
After extensive research on the subject, she realized that many families celebrate both holidays and that this was not only a gift idea for 2016, but gifts that interfaith families could enjoy each year when they celebrate the December holidays. Wendy says; "What began as a fun and creative project turned into what I felt was an untapped need in the holiday gift market."
With a deep respect for the religious nature of both Hanukkah and Christmas, Wendy does not recognize Chrismukkah as a holiday because it is solely a made up holiday created from the comedy TV show; The OC. Just as she did not use the coined phrase, "Thanksgivukkah" for the previous Hanukkah/Thanksgiving gift collection, she is not using the phrase, "Chrismukkah" with this collection of gifts.
Wendy feels that it is important for each family to celebrate the holidays as they see fit. "It is not for me to judge how people choose to celebrate their holidays." and she understands that interfaith holiday celebration is a sensitive topic for many people. Wendy wishes for religious tolerance and understanding, no matter how people choose to celebrate their holidays.
