An Introduction By Seth Cohen, Himself.
"So what's it gonna be huh? You want your menorah, or your candy cane? Christmas or Hanukkah? Don't worry about it buddy because in this house, you don't have to choose."
Chrismukkah, as the name implies, merges Christmas and Hanukkah into one super holiday. That means that you can take anything you like about both holidays (or any other one for that matter; Chrismukkah is inclusive) and combine them for extra festive festivities.
Some Accessory Options
1) The Yamaclaus
1 red yarmulke (Jewish skullcap) + white faux-fur trimming = yamaclaus.
2) The Menorah
Don't have candles on hand? Thanks to the magic of electricity, your menorah can actually last for way longer than the traditional eight days.
3) The Lights
Combine the traditional Christmas red and green with some Hanukkah white and blue.
4) The Christmas Sweater
Note: These are only acceptable in the week preceding the actual holiday. Once Chrismukkah is over, your reindeer sweater should be, too.
The Perfect Tree
If Seth Cohen has taught us anything, it's that the perfect tree is the heart and soul of Chrismukkah. Whether you're calling it a Christmas tree or a Hanukkah bush, decking it in boughs of holly or silver and blue dreidels, a good tree is key.
Look out for strong branches that can support heavy ornaments, and fresh needles. (Hanukkah may be the festival of light, but a house fire is definitely not festive.)
With A Side Of Bar Mitzvah
Remember when Ryan had a late-in-life bar mitzvah to raise money for Johnny? Mazel tov!
(Bonus points to this show for including the requisite "That's What Friends Are For" family group sway — a staple at any bar mitzvah.)
