Maybe we should just celebrate Festivus...

You know it's Christmukkah when your three-year-old:

  • wants to light the menorah while wearing his Santa cap
  • tries to blow out all the candles on the menorah each night
  • walks around singing "Let my people go" in a variety of voices
  • tells you "You're not on the same team as Daddy and me"
  • thinks that Santa Claus is called "jingle bells"
  • wants to sit on Jingle Bells' lap
  • thinks that he should get to open a present that's under the tree every night
  • wants to make Christmas cookies for Daddy
  • thinks that Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is his brother (I don't even want to know where that came from...)


  1. My daughter spent the day of the first night of Chanukah asking about Santa and when he brings her presents. She also wants to blow out the candles and sing happy birthday! Happy Christmanukah to all!

  2. Oh that's so cute! He is on the right track just take the best of all the celebrations and go for it!

  3. Funny! And Rudolph as a brother? Where do they get these things? I am sure he is having fun with it all!

  4. Haha! The best of both worlds, blended. :)

  5. I know lots of kids who call Santa "ho ho" and I think that's just rude. Especially when they're screaming it and trying to get away. "NOOOOOOO HOHO NOOOOOOO!"

    Charlie's Feldenkrais therapist has an LED lighted, tune-playing Menorah that Charlie just loves. More so than our Christmas tree which plays no tunes whatsoever.

  6. Awww! So cute. But what does he mean you're not on the same team as him and daddy??

  7. What a sweet imaginary friend. FYI...Did you know that Rudolph is technically a girl?

    Not on the same team...hahaha.

    btw. I thought of you when I bought the Charlie Brown book.

  8. Oh my goodness....I loved this!!! A new word I've learned, now if I can just remember it. Christmukka.

    Original...and cute and funny as can be.

  9. When we were at mass on Sunday, the CCD teacher asked the kids what day it was. HRH replied, "the third day of Hanukkah."

    The answer she was looking for was "The Third Sunday of Advent".
