The 12 Days of Chrismukkah (Sing-along!)

The 12 Days of Chrismukkah song

My husband is Jewish and I’m Christian.  We’ve been married for 8 years so we’ve figured out a way to make the holidays work for us.  We celebrate Chrismukkah.  And here for you, whether you’re an interfaith couple or not, is our very special holiday song — The 12 Days of Chrismukkah.  It’s best sung while wearing a yarmulke or a funny elf hat and while very, very drunk.  Watch it!  You’ll laugh, I promise.  And you’ll walk away with an understanding of our relationship I could never give you with words.

Merry Chrismukkah from our house to yours!

The Best And Worst Thing About Chrismukkah (and win a FURBY!)

The best thing about Chrismukkah and the worst thing about Chrismukkah?

One word.  Two perspectives.

Kid:  The best thing about Chrismukkah is the presents.  So many presents!

Parent:  The worst thing about Chrismukkah is the presents.  So many presents!

This is one aspect of combining Christmas and Hannukah that we haven’t figured out how to manage in a reasonable way.

Between 2 kids, 8 nights of Hannukah AND Christmas morning, I’m going bananas trying to keep up with the demand and our credit card is smoking.

No matter how long or short your holiday celebration is, I bet you’re overwhelmed with gift-buying too.

So let me help a little.

Today, I’m giving away a cute white Furby courtesy of CentslessDeals.com.  Wouldn’t this little guy look just adorbs in the arms of a kid you love?
