    Blended holiday traditions

    we call it "jewy christmas"

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     frantzm1 says she and her husband merrily celebrate what they call a 'Jewy Christmas.' The couple, a 'Brooklyn Italian and Texan Jew,' didn’t really celebrate either holiday until the birth of their two-year-old son, Leo. 'We sing jingle bells, we light the Chanukah candles and open gifts when we feel like it! We enjoy adding a touch of this and touch of that ... as long as it feels good and festive!' she explained. As for what their family thinks, she says they all do it. 'My sister is in the same situation as me: 'daddy Christmas and Chanukah mama.'' Do you celebrate Chrismukkah or or another combination of holidays? Share your story.
