Thanksgivingukkah: Drumsticks and Dreidels!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Drumsticks and dreidels. Gobble, gobble up the gold gelt. Mashed sweet potatoes and menorahs. Ok, ok…I’ll stop! But seriously, Thanksgivingukkah is a once in a lifetime event—literally, as it won’t happen again for another 70,000 years. I can’t even begin to count how many generations away that would be. Here are some unforgettable ways to celebrate this mash-up of two of the best holidays.

It’s too late now to order it, but how funny is this Turkey Menorah? Or Menurkey? Definitely get these fall-colored candles to really take the theme home! Both available at The Jewish Museum Shop.

If you want to make your own, you could use the structure of this crayon turkey and use candles instead! From Parents.com.

Every rare event needs a T-shirt to commemorate it. This one, Light, Liberty, and Latkes, is for sale at Modern Tribe.

Check out this sandwich, called the Thanksgivukkah Double Down. It’s a classic leftover turkey sandwich on turkey schmaltz-fried sweet potato latkes. Also on the sandwich: cranberry applesauce and shaved brussels sprouts, dressed in warm schmaltz-cider vinegar dressing. With a side of gravy, for dunking. Um, yes, please. Recipe at Food 52.

But tonight, the first night, is still all about the blue and white and applesauce (sans cranberry) on latkes. Enjoy the first of eight great nights of Hanukkah!
