Hanukkah Christmas Ornament - Perfect Solution for Mixed Religion Marriages

Hanukkah Christmas Ornament - Perfect Solution for Mixed Religion Marriages

Mixed religion marriages can face difficult questions during the holidays about how best to celebrate religious practices while respecting each other’s beliefs. So many religious holiday celebrations often overlap – this year Christmas and Hanukkah overlapped as did Kwanzaa and Muharram, the Islamic New Year.

Negotiating  plans for holiday celebrations is something each family needs to work out for themselves, but for one of Kyle Design’s customers, the solution is “Christkwanzmakkah“, a name that encompasses all the holidays in which their family members participate.

What a wonderful approach! As our customer explained it, rather than referring only to one event during their religious holiday planning, implying it is the somehow the most important or real or true, this family came up with this special name “Christkwanzmakkah” that lets friends and extended family members know that, in their case, Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are all being actively celebrated with equal importance.

Truly, a beautiful solution that reflects the best sentiments of the season!
