How to Celebrate Hannukah


Tonight marks the first night of Hannukah, and I paired up with my gal-pal Katya from The Style Sprinter to bring you some holiday cheer! Every year throughout the month of December my feed is entirely green and red with everyone spreading the holiday cheer for Christmas. As much as I love seeing everyone enjoying the excitement over the holiday I have realized there is a lack of Hannukah excitement on the internet. 
This year Katya and I painted the town in Blue and White in the holiday spirit and I am bringing you exciting things to do in NYC to celebrate the festival of lights. 



1. Where to Light:
Visit Brooklyn's Largest Menorah you can kick of Chanukah with the first Menorah lighting of the holiday 12/22- the festivities start at 4pm with candle lighting at 5:00 pm.
Candle lighting for the rest of the holiday:
Weeknights 5:30 pm
Friday 3:30pm
Saturday 7pm
Sunday 5:30 pm
Every night they will be hosting music, hot latkes & gifts for children!

2. Where to Eat:
Russ and Daughters at the Jewish Museum on the UWS for Noshes & Sweets
The Doughnut Project Jelly doughnuts are a traditional sweet treat for the holiday & their old school raspberry jelly doughnut is back on the menu for the holiday season! 
Try a "build your own latke board" at Reserve Cut in NYC. 

3. Have a night out:
 House of Yes they are ringing in the holiday with a special candle lighting ceremony with live performances, aerial spectacles, latkes & dancing. 
Hannukah Dueling Pianos Show a special holiday show at Patrick's.


4. Learn some of the history at the Eldridge Street Museum exhibit: Lighting the World: Menorahs Around the Globe. 

5. How to decorate:
I love Christmas decor but if you celebrate Hannukah that doesn't mean you can't decorate too!
Here are some great ideas to get your home ready for the holiday.
