Area restaurants are getting in on the action with Thanksgivukkah-apropos dishes. Among them is the pumpkin custard kugel chef Marjorie Druker is serving at the Modern Rotisserie annex of her New England Soup Factory in Newton.
This booklet explains the history of Hanukkah, the symbolism and significance of lighting candles for eight nights, the blessings that accompany the lighting of the candles, the holiday’s foods, the game of dreidel and more.
This is a musical celebration of the newest holiday on the block.
To celebrate the holiday, Kehillah Schechter Academy in Norwood created “The Ballad of Thanksgivukkah.” Check out the original video and lyrics.
I have always sent holiday cards to corporate friends and family the Monday after Thanksgiving in order to encompass all holidays. However, Hanukkah is the same week as Thanksgiving this year. Should holiday cards be sent out earlier in order to include those celebrating Hanukkah, or should I stick to the post-Thanksgiving rule?

Nail artist Hannah Pearlman created celestial galaxy nails to celebrate the fact that Thanksgivukkah is happening only because the stars aligned.
This table setting takes the best of each holiday and combines them together.
This news segment may be in Hebrew, but it’s still fun to follow along. (Hint: You’ll recognize several Boston connections!)
