Chrismukkah: Merging Secular Aspects of Christmas and Hanukkah

By December 1, 2004

Follow me on:

Hoping to encourage tolerance and increase the likelihood that children of interfaith marriages will be more knowledgeable about their dual cultural heritage, Michelle and Ron Gompertz created a website about celebrating Chrismukkah.

"Our intention wasn't to merge the religious aspects," Gompertz said, "but rather the secular aspects of the holidays."

Their site explained Chrismukkah and had stories about celebrating holidays as an interfaith couple along with mixed-faith holiday cards. [Note: Site missing as of 12/09]
