Okay, I don’t usually use this as a place to post external links, but as soon as my friend Rachel sent me this link, I knew it had to IMMEDIATELY be shared with as many people as possible, because I’m pretty sure passing this on is a mitzvah. Or something.

This year, because of the wonkiness of the lunar calendar, the first day of Channukah also happens to fall on American Thanksgiving. CHANNUKAH + THANKSGIVING = THANKSGIVUKKAH!!!

You guys.

Are you even hearing what I am saying?

WE ARE TALKING THE FEAST TO END ALL FEASTS, PEOPLE. Or, at least, American people!

So, if you happen to think that latkes with cranberry applesauce sound completely amazing — or sweet potato and bourbon kugel, or challah stuffing, for that matter — you should head on over to BuzzFeed now and spend fifteen full minutes squawking and exclaiming and just generally freaking out, as I just did.

Don’t be a total nebbish! Head on over there right this second! Here’s the link.

YOU ARE WELCOME, my friend.

xo,

A

    Of course, for Canadians we get to enjoy, much more frequently than once in 70,000 years, our own combo when Sukkot occurs in early October and surrounds the Canadian Thanksgiving: Thanksukkot!

    I clearly remember one Thanksgiving several years ago at the farm when I put up the sukka on the porch outside the dining room. I cut several fresh cedar boughs from down by the lake and had amazingly fragrant s’chach!

    Now that I’m married to an American, we’ll definitely have to try some of those innovative Hannukah recipes this year.

      It happens so infrequently, though,that I’d forgotten the correct name for this holiday: Thanksuggaving.
