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!
