Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, November 29, 2021

Inspired by “The O.C.” (is there anything that hip show can’t do?), it’s Chrismukkah!

Naturally, since it’s the spirit that counts, the spelling is relative:

Drop the T in Christmas, swap the N in Hanukkah for an M, and Voila! No one seems to agree on how to spell Hanukkah - Chanukah, Hanukah, Hannukah, Channukah? Thus, Chrismukkah has multiple (mis)spellings too: Chrismukka, Chrismukah, Chrismuka, Chrismakka, Christmukkah, Christmukah, Christmakkah, Christmakah… even Hanumas.. we’ve seen them all. But we prefer the typographic elegance of Chrismukkah.

Actually, going by the origin story for this Christian/Jewish holiday amalgamation, it comes off like a marketing opportunity to sell greeting cards. But I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

That said, where’s the love for Ramadan/Eid ul-Fitr and Kwanzaa? Why not “Chrismukkahramakwan”? It just rolls right off the tongue.
