Chrismukkah:

Exhibition Catalog

This book examines the history behind these holidays that recall the birth of Jesus and the re-dedication of the Temple, respectively, more than two thousand years ago.
The authors investigate the holidays’ origins, rituals, and customs, and seek out the cultural relationships between both traditions. Surprising and amusing, this book uses both kitsch and art to illustrate religious and secular aspects and offers insight into the rich and diverse histories of the popular Christian and Jewish holidays.
