With Four Crazy Nights Left, Here’s How to Throw a Banging Chrismukkah Party

Even though we’re already a few days into Hanukkah, there’s still plenty of time to throw a beautiful Chrismukkah bash.

If you didn’t watch The O.C. (how though?), let us recap: Chrismukkah is a holiday created by hot nerd Seth Cohen (played by the ever-hunky Adam Brody) that blends Christmas and Hanukkah traditions, making it the perfect celebration for families and friend groups whose religious beliefs are all over the place.

Follow these tips for a very successful Chrismukkah gathering, hopefully one that doesn’t involve shocking paternity reveals or drunken meltdowns.

1. Put on any one of the six marvelous O.C. soundtracks for sick tunes.

It’s not a Cohen party without some deadbeat indie music. We’re partial to the stylings of The O.C.: Mix 3 – Have a Very Merry Chrismukkah.

2. Have no less than 20 handles of vodka on hand.

Chances are you have a Marissa Cooper-type friend. Make sure to have vodka readily available so she doesn’t have to go sneaking around.

3. Only let people who are wearing a Christmas or Hanukkah sweater into the party. This is non-negotiable.

4. Make sure to have equal parts Christmas and Hanukkah decorations around the house.

5. Set up a photo booth in front of the fireplace.

Get really into it. Hang stockings. Light a fire! What matters is that you’re with the people you love…and that the lighting is such that your cheekbones will actually show up in the pic.

6. Make your own Santa-hat yamakas (YAMACLAUS) and give them out as party favors.

Sacrilegious? Maybe. Adorable? Completely. Simply glue a white cotton ball to the top and line the perimeter with cotton.

7. Keep it classy with nice alcohol and snacks that were never even once frozen.

Splurge on good cheese, crackers and olives. Even go ahead and buy the third-cheapest wine at the store. Chrismukkah only comes once a year.

You’ll also want to have an assortment of latkes and Christmas cookies, or what’s even the point of anything?

8. Remember: Chrismukkah is “unruinable.” Have fun with it.

Merry Chrismukkah, y’all. Whether you’re from Chino or Orange County or somewhere in between, we hope your holidays are joyous … and that you get to kiss someone who resembles (however remotely) Seth Cohen under the mistletoe.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

You would never know there was a Jewish Holiday celebrated this time of year with the stores decorated for Christmas in September. All Hallmark movies are Christmas themed. You might see 15 items on QVC for Hanukkah where they have over 1000 for Christmas. There is Never a Hanukkah in July show.

you know, it is OK to celebrate chanukah on it’s own. there are 4 nights of chanukah left. christmas doesn’t need to enter into it. unless you’re just borrowing from a sort of culturally significant show literally for no reason other than you guys don’t think any of us out here just celebrate chanukah. pretty gross.

Totem Destroyer, a cool physics based puzzle game, required number of blocks in each level without breaking the little golden statue. The Sony Play – Station Two is Sony’s second computer game console, the successor to the original Sony Play – Station, and the predecessor to the Sony Play – Station Three. Your objective is to eliminate these monsters and escape the ship.
