In 1888, a miracle happened that lasted 8 crazy nights, Thanksgiving and Chanukah overlapped and all was alright.
Potatoes for presents and dreidels for dinner, the holidays fused and everyone was a winner.
This year the same fate happened again – Thanksgivukkah for everyone – and things were well with the world, among family and friends.
However, this rare Thanksgivukkah extravaganza will only return in 79,043 years, so I hope you’ve cherished this one with an extra round of cheers.
The holiday mashup of Thanksgiving and Chanukah is clearly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so here’s a guide to know whether or not you’ve done Thanksgivukkah right … and have no fear: There are still six more nights!
1. Instagram a picture of your menorah next to your plate of Thanksgiving food.
2. Play Hanukkah music while grubbing on leftovers.
3. Play dreidel in order to gamble on which relative will pass out first after doing Number 2 (see above).
4. Go Black Friday shopping for the gifts you were supposed to give two nights ago.
5. Have a Thanksgiving brunch: bagels and turkey with cranberry sauce on the side.
With that, happy Thanksgivukkah to all, and to all a good night!
