As all of you know, this Thursday is Thanksgiving. As some of you may know, this Wednesday night is the first night of Hanukkah. What? That's crazy. Hanukkah and Thanksgiving are on the same day this year. How rare is that? What are the odds? (Here are the odds, how rare it is, and why it may never happen again: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-joel-hoffman/hanukkah-and-thanskgiving_b_4312207.html) What does this mean for us?
I'm so confused. Do we call it Thanksgivukkah or "Ch"anksgiving? Do we spin a dreidel or a drumstick? Do we eat Latkes or lots of stuffing? Do the candles burn for 8 days or does the turkey baste for 8 days? Is Black Friday now the second holiest day for Jews in November? What is going on?
Personally for me, Hanukkah has always been similar to Thanksgiving. The first day is great, and then the following days I'm tired of eating the same food over and over again. It will be nice to be together with family during both of the holidays. Plus, its better, because Hanukkah doesn't fit into my December schedule this year. Thanks universe, I appreciate it! *wink*
This year, I'm most thankful for the friends I've made. What are you most thankful for? Think about that, but don't forget to watch football, eat food, and light the menorah (if you're Jewish. If you're not Jewish, why would you have a menorah?) The point here is that a food coma is twice as likely this year. I think that's what I've been trying to say. I'm not sure. Enjoy your week.
P.S. In honor of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving being the same day, I'm deep frying the turkey.
