Hanukkah Bush
 n.— «For many years, some Jewish children who have longed for a Christmas tree have been permitted by their parents to have a “Hanukkah Bush.” This is a tree with the Star of David or a candelabra—the symbol of Hanukkah, the Jewish holiday that falls in the Christmas season.» —“Jewish Families Puzzled By Problem of Christmas” by Martin Tolchin New York Times Dec. 12, 1960.
