Chrismukka in Tel Aviv

For the first time in more than a decade, the first night of Hanukka will coincide with Christmas. The momentous occasion did not go unnoticed by the Tel Aviv Municipality, which has planned a variety of events for those who enjoy a little eggnog with their jelly doughnuts (sufganiyot), dubbing the celebration “Chrismukka.”

Lights will illuminate Tel Aviv Port with “dozens of clear pipes covered with shining lights with thousands of rolling balls,” according to the municipality. The instillation, which looks like Christmas lights from afar, creates “a vast Hanukka menorah that will be lit during the Hanukka nights.” The lights will be viewable from December 24 to January 1, from 5:30 p.m. to midnight.
