Oh come, ‘OC’ faithful. . .

WB offers merch around holiday episode of teen sudser

Forget Festivus: The new hot made-for-TV holiday is Chrismukkah.

The mash-up of Christmas and Hanukkah originated last year as the focus of a holiday episode of Fox’s hit sudser “The OC.” Series creator Josh Schwartz calls the interfaith holiday “eight days of gifts followed by one day of many, many gifts.”

However you define Chrismukkah, it was an instant hit among the show’s young fan base. And now it’s going commercial.

A Chrismukkah CD of holiday tunes was released earlier this year. And now, using recently launched OCInsider.com, producer Warner Bros. is offering fans a slew of Chrismukkah-related merchandise.

You can buy boxes of Chrismukkah cards. There’s Chrismukkah wrapping paper. Or for $16, you can get the Yarmuclaus — a fuzzy red combination of a yarmulke and a Santa hat.

Latter item is actually selling out on the Web site, even though it won’t make its TV debut until the second annual “OC” Chrismukkah episode, which airs Dec. 16.

Schwartz is still bummed about one bit of Chrismukkahalia that wasn’t.

“I wanted to get the Beastie Boys to do a cover of ‘Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel,’ ” he sighs. “It didn’t happen.”
