What do you get when you cross Thanksgiving with Hannukah?
Yes, this year, the first day of Hannukah (which is actually the second night -- oy, it's so complicated!) falls on Thanksgiving...a mash-up of epic proportions!
This has spurred a frenzy of culinary creativity, resulting in hybrid Thanksgiving/Hannukah recipes, like Challah Stuffing, Sweet Potato Latkes, Cranberry Applesauce...there are way too many to list.
a Thanksgiving/Hannukah Cornucopia, stuffed with pine cones, dreidels and gelt!
A Kosher Horn of Plenty...
..or a Horn of Tchatchkes, if you will.
It's a rare occurrance that these two holidays collide. In fact, last time it happened was in 1888, back when Grover Cleveland was president, and the year when Vincent Van Gogh cut off his ear.
But don't put Thanksgivukah into your iPhone calendar just yet... the next time it rolls around is 70,000 years from now!!!!
(that's Happy Thanksgivukah in Hebrew).
