The homemade latkes and beef brisket may be the star of Hanukkah (in your eyes, at least), but the eight-day celebration is about so much more than that. Also called the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is a time for family and friends to come together and honor their shared history, traditions and faith. While there are more important holidays in the Jewish faith, Hanukkah is a cause for celebration, especially since it falls so close to Christmas and Kwanzaa. (FYI: Hanukkah goes from November 28 – December 6 this year.)
Before the festivities begin, deck the halls with these Hanukkah decorations — some traditional, some modern, some a mix of the two. From punny dish towels to elegant place settings, these indoor and outdoor decorations from Amazon, Etsy and other online retailers embrace the holiday’s traditional colors (blue and white) and symbols (Star of David and Tree of Life). Since time spent with loved ones is at the heart of Hanukkah, there are also a few decorations that double as family-friendly games and activities, including a countdown banner that lets kids get in on the fun. And while this list includes all of the classics, finish off your holiday display with some of these easy Hanukkah crafts, great for kids and parents alike.
