The Best Hanukkah TV Episodes From Rugrats, Friends, The O.C. and More

Best Hanukkah TV Episodes

With a belly full of Thanksgiving turkey, we now turn our attention (and stomachs) to Hanukkah and latkes. The eight-night celebration begins earlier than usual this year, kicking off this Sunday evening, Nov. 28, and to mark the occasion, TVLine has compiled a list of the eight best Hanukkah episodes to cue up.

Unfortunately, there aren’t as many pickings to choose from as there are for Christmas (view those “Best Of” selections here), but fittingly, we have found one installment for each night of the Jewish holiday. Our highlights include a poignant Brothers & Sisters storyline, The O.C.‘s classic first Chrismukkah outing and plenty of hearty laughs courtesy of The Goldbergs, The Nanny and other comedies.

We’ve also singled out a pair of children’s programs that featured Hanukkah episodes that are both educational and entertaining for parents and kiddos alike. And this year, Nickelodeon’s preschool series Blue’s Clues & You! will join in the tradition with a new Hanukkah-themed installment, “A Blue’s Clues Festival of Lights” (premiering today at 12 pm ET/PT).

So as you prepare to light your menorah, check out the guide below to TV’s best Hanukkah episodes and where to stream them, then hit the comments to share your faves!
