Happy Hanukkah! Welcome to this eight day celebration that commemorates the rededication of the Holy Temple during the second century BCE. It begins on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar and can also be called the Festival of Lights. It's amazing that one of the most celebrated holidays can have so much history! One of the most famous symbols of Hanukkah is the menorah. Every night one of the eight candles is lit to celebrate. Make sure you commemorate this special Jewish holiday with family and friends by throwing a party! Whether you want a small get-together or a large gala, we've got the most unique Hanukkah invitations that will get guests excited for the upcoming party.
We stock modern and chic invitations featuring a Hanukkah girl sitting on a dreidel holding a glass of wine (Manischewitz, perhaps?), a lady sitting on a stack of presents and one in the middle of a menorah – all ready to get the party started! And of course we have more traditional invites that feature the Star of David, dreidels, menorahs, the Tree of Life and much more. First you'll need to decide what type of event you're having. Are you throwing a large gala complete with a formal dress code, finger food and plenty of socializing? Make sure guests know what type of event they're attending with one of our Hanukkah party invitations. Something more formal or religious may call for a traditional Hanukkah party invitation with a Shield of David or Star of David graphic. Other, more cartoonish designs include peace signs, hearts and candles. Whatever type of party or get-together you decide to throw, we can assure you that when your guest receives one of our invites in the mail, they'll start planning their attendance immediately.
Make sure guests have plenty of notice and start planning immediately. Simply choose which type of invitation best represents your party's tone and start personalizing. Include fun and festive phrases like "Twinkle, twinkle Hanukkah lights, shining brightly for eight nights, see the dreidel spin around, eat some latkes crisp and brown, twinkle twinkle Hanukkah lights, come and join us on this night." A more traditional Hanukkah invitation may include phrasing like "May your home grow brighter, your faith grow stronger and your hearts be warm with each candle you light." Whichever way you decide to celebrate, make sure there is plenty of traditional food and wine, and of course, beautiful Hanukkah invitations to get guests excited. Special custom foods include potato latkes, fritters and doughnuts. So, here's an excuse to eat the fried food you've been missing all year all while keeping with tradition.
