Headed To A Hannukah Party? You'll Need A Gift For The Grab Bag.

Hannukah is in two weeks, and if you’re lucky you’ve been invited to a Hannukah party (they’re really, really fun). There are always doughnuts, latkes, and a ton of booze (not just Manischewitz kiddish wine), but those things are not even the reasons why these parties are so great—that’s usually because of the grab bag. A grab bag is what Jews have instead of a Secret Santa. It’s a gift exchange, but there is no specified giver or receiver—so you have to bring a gift, but you won’t know who will end up with it—sort of like a White Elephant Gift exchange minus the steals and gift swapping. Because you won’t know who will walk way with your gift, some guests like to bring things that are funny, ridiculous, and kitschy—that way almost anyone can enjoy them, or at least get a kick out of them. I once ended up with a toilet bowl mug—gross, I know—but it was totally funny after a few drinks.

And whether you choose to bring a pair of earbuds or a flask that reads “Why The Hell Am I Not A Mermaid?”, one thing’s for sure—someone’s gonna walk away with something they thought they’d never own.
