A kick-off to Hanukkah with eight nights of candles, latkes and turkey?
Yes, that’s right! For the first time in history, Hanukkah and Thanksgiving are falling on the same day… Thanksgivukkah
IT WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN FOR ANOTHER 70,000 YEARS!
On Nov. 28, both Jews and Non-Jews across America will be feasting and rejoicing for many of the same reasons. Thanksgiving paired with Hanukkah is a chance for all us to celebrate the religious freedoms that make our country great — whether you’ll be lighting candles, carving a turkey or doing both!
There’s already a Facebook page devoted to Thanksgivukkah, with a corresponding Twitter account: @Thanksgivukkah. Twitter has been buzzing about Thanksgivukkah for weeks now, there’s even an account for The Menurkey (menorah + turkey).
Stay up-to-date with Jstylemagazine.com and find out the best recipes that make both holidays special, quirky ways to spin your dreidel, what Jews think of breaking the wishbone, and much more! We even have a second-by-second countdown to Thanksgivukkah at the bottom of the site!
