Dad's Jewish, Mom's not...what about the kids?
When two parents have different religions, things can get sticky around the holidays. Do you celebrate his holiday, her holiday, or both? One Mom in the office celebrates both Christmas and Hanukkah: "My kids, ages 4 and 6, get double the presents," she says. Another Mom feels it sends mixed messages to do both, so her family does Hanukkah only: "I miss having a tree, but it just feels a little weird to celebrate Christ's birth and honor the Jewish holidays at the same time to me. I don't want to confuse my daughter." Another Mom here says her family borrowed a tradition from The O.C., and celebrates "Chrismukkah": "By blending both holidays into one new one, we can honor our respective family traditions while creating our own." We say the best approach is to do whatever works (and that's different for every family).
