- Celebrate Both Holidays at Home: For some families, equal immersion is the way to go. They light candles for Hanukkah and open gifts every night. They also put up a Christmas tree, sit down for traditional Christmas meals, and exchange gifts with family and friends.
- Celebrate One and Visit the Other: Many families choose to celebrate one holiday at home and spend the other at a relative or friend's home.
- Celebrate Christmukkah: Anyone who has seen a Hanukkah bush or a Star-of-David tree topper is familiar with the Christmukkah phenomenon. Some like the idea of integration, while others are concerned about the long-term effects of assimilation.
- Celebrate the Winter Solstice: Some people avoid the issue altogether by focusing on a secular celebration. They bring greenery indoors, make birdfeeders, light a yule log, and decorate with natural elements such as pinecones or snowflakes.
