Timing is everything, and no holiday knows this better than Hanukkah. The lovely Jewish Festival of Lights, which starts December 2 in 2018, can get lost in the post-Thanksgiving weeks dominated by the Christmas holiday. Though Hanukkah celebrates Jewish revolt against Greco-Syrians who tried to assimilate them rather than allow them to maintain their identity and traditions, it's often flippantly referred to as the Jewish Christmas. Nope.
Focus on Hanukkah until it ends on the evening of December 8 by first reminding everyone that the menorah is not a Christmas light.
