This year, the Festival of Lights starts on December 10 and concludes on December 18. So, bring out the menorah and get ready to light it up each night and celebrate. Go all out and make this festivity better and brighter than ever before with JCPenney.
Eat Latkes in Style
The traditional foods cooked during Hanukkah are not that simple to make, so make sure they are served up stylishly like they deserve. Set the table with a mix of passed-down heirlooms and new pieces for a modern memory mashup. Use elegant table runners, lovely glassware and perhaps some blue dinnerware. And, of course, don’t forget the candles! You may use your menorah on the table, or perhaps you’d like to display an array of candles in candle holders to match your decor style.
Make your home cozy with wreaths or other greenery throughout your home. Try garlands draped across the mantel or down the center of the table. Stack some blue ornament balls in a clear vase for simple, visual color. Why not make your own Hanukkah decorations? Try some of these ideas, including creating your own gelt. Get the kids involved in these arts and crafts for a weeklong worth of fun. Give some extra illumination to your home with blue LED lights.
Eight Days of Gifts
Among spinning the dreidel, kids enjoy getting gifts during the eight days of celebration. Some good ideas include games and puzzles, especially if they can be enjoyed by the whole family. Pajamas are a sensible, cozy gift that kids will enjoy donning during the festive season. Robes or slippers are add-on extras that complete the look. Books or video games are good options that could be personalized to each child. Of course, any little one would appreciate any of the selection of new toys available this year.
