The Food Obvi Thanksgiving and Hanukkah food are both amazing on their own. But the combo of the two together? Sweet potato latkes? Fried turkey? We're unbuttoning our pants just thinking about it. Check out some great recipe ideas that mix Turkey Day and the Festival of Lights!
It Only Happens Once Every 70,000 Years For some crazy reason, the stars and moon aligned or something and Hanukkah is WAY early this year on the Jewish calendar. It's usually beginning to mid December, or even around Christmas time. And Thanksgiving is actually a week late. So once every 70,000 years, this happens.

Someone Invented A Menurkey Yep. Menurkey = Menorah + Turkey (don't worry it's not a real one!). The traditional menorah, which we light and add one candle each night of Hanukkah until all 8 are burning bright, gets an upgrade this year in the form of a Turkey. We don't know why someone didn't think of this sooner, because a (fake) Turkey's feathery tail is the perfect place for candle holders. Get a menurky here.
The Thanksgivukkah Anthem
We don't know where Adam Sandler is on this one, but whoever made this video totally stole his thunder. This is just as good as any Hannukah or Thanksgiving song, but that much more epic because it combines BOTH.
Someone Invented The Phrase "Gobble Tov" It only makes sense since Jews say 'Mazel Tov" as congratulations, and Turkeys gobble soooo.... Get a Gobble Tov sticker here.
You Can Shop T-Shirts, Cards, And More Novelty Items Because you don't want to forget YOU were one of the lucky ones who got to celebrate this once in 70,000 years event. And you can show your grandkids, pass it down from generation to generation (so symbolic), etc. There's cards with a Thanksgivukkah spin on the "American Gothic" painting, t-shirts with the woodstock logo re-imagined for Thanksgivukkah and more!
