Eight Nights, Eight Delights – Fun Hanukkah Accessories
Whether you spell it Hanukkah or Chanukah, it’s the most joyful time in the Jewish calendar. December 16-24 are this year’s Eight Crazy Nights. Show your pride in fun and unusual ways with these great, inexpensive finds that also have coupon codes for extra savings.
1. Whether you’re shopping for groceries, going to a party or walking the dog, these kooky, funny menorah glasses are the perfect accoutrement. One size fits all from Busted Tees.
2. We all know about the Ugly Christmas Sweater. You knew it was only a matter of time before Walmart created a Hanukkah version, didn’t you? Oy! Hey, this one’s just a shirt. Cover it up if you have to!
3. Sure, there’s a T-shirt for everything, but this one from Zazzle is a little more subtle than the usual holiday shirt, for not much “gelt” (money). It’s comfy, too, made of 6 oz. pre-shrunk cotton. With a coupon code, you’ll pay even less.
4. Speaking of gelt, step away from the usual foil-wrapped chocolate coins this year. Go bigger, bolder and more personal with custom-printed candy bar wrappers from Oriental Trading. Send a photo, add a special message and wrap the chocolate candy bars that are included. Makes for a warmhearted gift for teachers, neighbors and friends.
5. Light the menorah, then light up your cubicle or dorm room with this kitschy strand of dreidel and menorah lights from Party City. Plug them in almost anywhere and get the party started!
6. Latkes (potato pancakes to you goyim) are a scrumptious part of the Chanukah meal. Great for your home or as a hostess gift is this stainless steel cut-out latke server, available at Bed Bath and Beyond. Dishing out second helpings has never been so much fun!
7. Adam Sandler’s hit song Eight Crazy Nights is a staple of the holiday, but 13 Macca Beats for the Hole family – Chanukah Fever will have you disco dancing, doing the hora, whatever your dancing feet fancy. Get it at Barnes and Noble.
8. It makes you laugh! It teaches parts of speech! It even entertains Bubbe! Mad Libs, the popular fill-in-the-words game, has enough stories in its holiday edition to entertain you and the family for well over eight nights.
