Hanukkah and Christmas 2017 with Three Brothers Bakery!

November 27, 2017

Now that we’re past Thanksgiving, it’s on to the next set of holidays at Three Brothers Bakery. We’re already making our preparations for Hanukkah (Tuesday, December 12 – Wednesday, December 20) and Christmas (Monday, December 25)! Growing up, my mom did not allow us to decorate for Hanukkah until the first night. So right before sundown, we’d rush to put up our little string of blue and white balls and […]

Purim 2017

March 6, 2017

Happy Purim! On the evening of Purim, Jews go to the synagogue, where the rabbi shares the story of Esther, who stood up to Haman and helped the Jewish people escape his tyranny. This commemoration leads into the Purim schpeil, a community play acting out the Megillah (story of Esther). Some of my favorite Purim memories include Harvey Gibb dressing up as Queen Esther – and, of course, the infamous […]

Christmas Hanukkah

Chrismukkah

December 19, 2016

Three years ago, you may remember the serendipitous occurrence known as Thanksgivukkah when the holidays of Thanksgiving and the beginning of Hanukkah happened to fall on the same day. (That was a once-in-70,000 years’ overlap, so don’t count on another one of such celebrations in your lifetime.) But don’t fret too much because 2016 gives us another fun holiday crossover! This year, say hello to Chrismukkah: the first night of […]

Jewish High Holidays

September 20, 2016

It has come to the time of the year when the Jewish people celebrate the High Holidays of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah. Since these do have an impact on the operations of our bakery, we thought it might be helpful to offer a quick explanation of each. Rosh Hashanah: Sunday, October 2 – Tuesday, October 4 This is the Jewish New Year and the kick-off to the Ten Days […]

Labor Day with Three Brothers Bakery

September 2, 2016

Happy Labor Day! While this might spell the unofficial end of summer with the holiday Monday, we still think there are many reasons to celebrate. We certainly think hard work deserves recognition. So, in that spirit, we wanted to thank the many employees of Three Brothers Bakery who bring talent, creativity and passion every day to make every sweet a treat. Below are some pictures of them along with some […]

Get ready. National Picnic Day is almost here.

April 19, 2016

National Picnic Day falls at a perfect time for us – April 23, right before those 90-degree temperatures become the norm.

Spring has sprung!

March 31, 2016

Spring has sprung! The season has now officially changed, even though the Houston weather started feeling like summer a while back. You might have noticed our bakery cases reflect the season as well, bringing exciting new treats and decorations to celebrate. It’s a time when we get to celebrate birth as well as all things new and fresh – the blooming of flowers, the transformation of caterpillars into butterflies, the return […]

Hoppy Easter!

March 21, 2016

“Hoppy” Easter! Here at Three Brothers Bakery, we love this holiday because of all the colorful, adorable treats we can create to celebrate. Since Easter so frequently aligns with the beginning of spring, it allows us to break out the sunny, bright pastels. We also have quite a bit of fun playing around with the unofficial holiday mascot, the Easter Bunny. There is one festive design we see more and […]

Purim and Hamantaschen

March 8, 2016

No matter when you come to visit Three Brothers Bakery, you may notice a plentiful selection of our Hamantaschen. These treats are a popular favorite here, but you may find it hard to believe that this is not the case nationwide. We are the very rare American bakery that carries them all year long! Most people only enjoy Hamantaschen around this time of year to celebrate the Jewish holiday of […]

Happy Leap Day!

February 29, 2016

Happy Leap Day! Today is that special, magical day which only occurs every four years in order to realign the calendar with the earth’s rotation around the sun. Since it takes the planet approximately 365 days and 6 hours to complete an orbit, the extra time adds up to a full day every 4 years. What to do with this extra day? We have an idea. Why not leap ahead […]
