Now that the parade of Jewish holidays has passed, it’s time to start planning for the impending arrival of an unprecedented hybrid: “Thanksgivukkah” is coming!
From the Jewish Journal

He may not be able to spell it, but Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is on board with Thanksgivukkah. He promised to proclaim Nov. 28 “Thanksgivukkah Day” in the city.

From the “TODAY Show”

A once-in-a-century holiday is upon us. The Menurkey will soon sit at the table with the pumpkin pie and the latkes. Let us not underestimate this moment for the American Jewish community. Thanksgivukkah is here.
