Early Chanukah a Good Omen for Gift Business

Brooklyn, NY…An early Chanukah will be a boon for the gift business, kosher food sources say. The first night of Chanukah falls on November 28th, almost a full month before the secular holiday season. But while some gift businesses prefer a season when Chanukah coincides with the secular holidays, some said that an early Chanukah enables them to focus on the Jewish holiday Chanukah and not on the season as a whole. The Chanukah gift business has in recent years grown by nearly 40%, according to some estimates, a trend they expect to continue in 2021. A good deal of the gift business has shifted to on-line with the expansion of many on-line options.
