Nights to Remember: Hanukkah at Princeton

We spoke with Princeton students to ask them how they celebrate Hanukkah — at home and on campus.

As campus winds down in anticipation of Winter Break, and many people are thinking about the traditional “holiday season,” Daybreak is spotlighting three holidays that Princetonians celebrated throughout the fall semester: Diwali, Día de los Muertos, and Hanukkah.

On Nov. 5, members of the Princeton Community gathered at the Arts Council of Princeton to celebrate Día de los Muertos, also known as Day of the Dead. Daybreak took a trip down Witherspoon Street to join the celebrations and learn more about the holiday — and how the Princeton community celebrates.
