Hosting a Beautiful Hanukkah

Hosting a Beautiful Hanukkah

(A table setting in the traditional hues of blue, white, and silver. An elaborate dreidel adds a gorgeous touch._

Sunday at sundown marks the first day of Hanukkah, one of the highest Jewish holidays. Hanukkah is a tradition-based holiday rooted in the story of the miraculous oil that lasted for 8 days and 8 nights. This miracle of light has earned Hanukkah the alternate name, The Festival of Lights.

We've compiled some traditional and classic Hanukkah table settings, accents, and recipes, along with some modern takes on this ancient holiday.
