Date: Holiday season on and around Dec. 25. Eight days of presents followed by one day with a lot of presents.
Origin: The blending of Christmas and Hanukkah, celebrated by kids with one Jewish and one Christian parent, was popularized by a 2003 episode of the teen drama series "The O.C." Though the actual practices are hazy, decorations include the display of a Christmas tree and a menorah and there's the Christmas Day tradition of staying in to eat Chinese takeout and watch movies such as "Fiddler on the Roof" and "It's a Wonderful Life."
