When I was a kid, I was friends with a boy whose family always threw a Hannukah party (with about 3/4 of the guests being non-Jewish). We even went back for a last round the year most of us went away to college. It's as much a part of my holiday tradition as anything else, but still feels awkward and culturally appropriative to celebrate. Which I don't mean in a judgmental way! I think the cultural exposure aspect is great.
