Hanukkah is all about celebrating with friends and loved ones, and this year we've discovered a new trend that will quickly become your new favorite tradition. Hanukkah charcuterie boards are popping up all over Instagram, and each one looks more delicious than the last. While you'll likely have at least one large family meal this season (here are 29 Hanukkah recipes to try), you probably won't be feasting for eight days in a row.

That's where these themed snack boards come in: After you gather to light that day's candle and observe the significance of the holiday, serve family and friends a savory latke board filled with all the traditional toppings and sides. Or, set out a festive dessert board filled with blue and white treats and gold coins for a sweet surprise.

To help inspire your own charcuterie creations, these are a few of our favorite Hanukkah snack boards from Instagram.
