It’s a Pirate’s Life for Me December 10, 2008

We dredged the Chanukah box out of the basement today.


Two years ago we had “Piranukah”.  Piranukah = Pirate Chanukah, of course!

Chanukah is the one Jewish holiday that is not religiously based so we took a little liberty  and came up with Piranukah.  Here is our treasure chest that we used to store our 8 nights of gifts in and to set the tone for general pirate merriment.


Unorthodox, uh-huh.  Fun as all get out, you bet!  We’re undecided if we’re going to go with a theme this year or not.  Egyptonukah perhaps?

I’ve seen a lot of great Christmas crafts in bloggertown but haven’t found any cool Chanukah crafts.  Anyone have any on their blogs or seen some in their travels?

Thanks and have a good one, no matter what you call it!!!!

    What a great idea! Have any girly Chanukah theme ideas? Fairies or Princesses, maybe? How about a Charry Potter Chanukah?
    I’m working on a post of Chanukah crafts, but I’d better get going on it because the Festival of Lights is just around the corner!

    i’d suggest ‘dinoukah’ but it really doesn’t have that ‘piranukah’ ring to it…hmmmm.

    and now i have the ‘dreidel dreidel dreidel’ south park song stuck in my head.

    It seems the blog would is lacking in Chanukah crafting. This may be your calling. I love to hear how people who don’t celebrate Christmas celebrate.

  5. Complete Stranger Says:

    With your crafty creative mind, you should invent a Chanukah craft and market it!

    Going South for the holidays, you could have a “gritsnukah”…no?

  6. Crystal Says:

    I have not seen any cool Chanukah crafts in blogland, other than yours of course.

    I’ll keep my eyes peeled for anything Chanukah related.

    Why can’t you live next door to me?

  8. Crystal Says:

    I said I would keep my eyes peeled…

    Very Cute Post! Love the “Spin the dreidel or walk the plank”.
    The only site I could come up with was and it was a bit lame. Sorry!

    Still I think your Felt Minorah was very cute!

    Love Piranukah! I need to start brain-storming for Hannukah crafts and recipes and this is totally inspiring me. Thanks!

  11. Amanda Says:

    That’s really cute, never would have thought to use pirate garb. Love it!

  12. Sara Rivka Says:

    Yes there are some Chanukah crafts out there in blog land, working very very hard to try and fill the obvious void, so do help get the word out!

    Happy Chanukah!

    Hi, I found this link thanks to the Crafty Crow. Such a great idea! But I’m so curious, what else did you do to celebrate “piranukah”? Would you mind sharing? Thanks!
