  • Hannukah Cheer

    I know that at this time of year we are inundated by images of Santa, reindeers and little baby Jesus sleeping away in a manger, but today I want to remember some of the other celebrations that go on this time of year – namely Hanukkah. Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights for Jews around the world and it begins at sundown on December 20th this year. It is an 8-day celebration based on the miracle of the menorah. The history behind it, is that the Jews won in battle over the Seleucids in the 2nd century BCE. They reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, but only had enough oil to light the lamp for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days; long enough to replenish the stores of olive oil for the menorah. This miracle was noted and has never been forgotten.

     

    Today, the menorah is lit every day over the eight days of Hanukkah to recognize this sign from G-d. Babybox.com lights a candle too with our personalized hanukkah pattern classic short sleeve tee shirt. Who says the holidays have to be somber?  Have a little fun with this shirt that will look adorable on your kid. Designed with turquoise and gray hanukkah print, it is classic and unique. This classic style short sleeve tee shirt works on any child and comes in sizes 2T, 4T and 6T or youth sizes 8-12. In fact, you can get this pattern in a short or long-sleeve lap tee, long-sleeve tee, capsleeve tee, baseball tee or even tank top. It is made from 100% cotton and easy to care for.

     

    By its very nature, Hanukkah certainly wouldn’t be the same without people. So send some Hannukah cheer for friends and family with this card. It features a fashionista girl wearing her little black dress sitting on top of a pile of presents and holding a dreidel. Happy Hanukkah is written on the top of the card.

    Just to let you know, the cards are blank inside. Please contact our design studio if you would like this design personalized with a greeting inside, design@babybox.com

    This stylish card measures 5″ x 7″ and is printed on luxurious warm white card stock (recycled). Warm white envelopes are included. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and other organizations promoting breast cancer awareness.

     

    Along with the menorah and the people, the celebrations always center around food. Latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiots (doughnuts) are made and need to be served. What better way to present them, than on this beautiful handpainted Hanukkah plate. It is a pretty way to enjoy this special holiday. You and your child can celebrating traditions with this fun plate. The plate design features a girl holding a tray of potato latkes sits in the center surrounded by dreidels. The outside of the plate is decorated with your baby’s name, dreidels and “potato latkes.” Plates measure approximately 8 1/4″ and are made from imported Italian bisqueware which is dishwasher and microwave safe. This makes a great gift.

     

    If you would like your child to learn more about their Jewish heritage, what better way than with their very own personalized personalized hanukkah book and plus bear gift set. In this beautifully illustrated story in which your child celebrates the eight days of Hanukkah, the child lights the Menorah, plays with a Dreidel, enjoys chocolate Gelt and Latkes, and on day eight receives the gift of a cuddly bear. The child’s name is incorporated on the book cover and throughout the story, and the child’s family members are included on an illustration of gift tags on presents around the menorah.

    As an added touch, the story features a personalized letter from the gift-giver telling the child what a special lifelong friend he or she will be for the bear. Written by Jennifer Dewing, illustrated by award-winning Wilson Ong.

     

    So from Babybox.com to all our Jewish friends, we wish you a very Happy Hanukkah!
