Holiday Season Decisions

By December 3, 2013

Follow me on:

Both Hanukkah and Advent force couples to make holiday season decisions -- especially if they are in an interfaith marriage.

While some interfaith couples are against intermingling religious traditions, others believe both faith traditions can be shared. Chrismukkah is one way to celebrate a couple's dual cultural and religious heritages.

Regardless of how you decide to celebrate the holidays, regardless of whether you are an interfaith couple or both belong to the same faith, accept that you each bring important childhood memories and traditions to your marriage and communicate those with honesty and caring. Your support of one another is what is truly important.
