Whatever you choose to call it, this won’t-occur-again-for-79,043-years event raises all kinds of fun possibilities and, for those celebrating, I thought I’d share a few links.
- Make a a pumpkin menorah;
- Cook the perfect Thanksgivukkuh meal;
- Make a “menurky” (a turkey menorah) and visit the official menurkey website;
- Look out for the giant dreidl in the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade;
- Give some meaning to the holiday with one of “Eight Giving Rituals for Your Family;”
- Read about past Thankgivukkuhs in America; and
- Watch a cute Thanksgivvukah parody of the song, “Royals” (but if watching with kids, be warned that there’s one swear word toward the end of the song):
And for all of us celebrating Thanksgiving, with or without Hanukkah, this is the time of year when I traditionally remind readers (and myself) to consider the millions of American kids currently living in food-insecure households. Just click on the “Help Hungry Kids” tab above for links to reputable charities working to alleviate hunger here in the United States and around the world. I also provide a link to the addictive Free Rice game, which lets you expand your vocabulary and play other knowledge games while helping to feed the hungry.
Wishing you all a safe, happy holiday with much to be thankful for. See you next week!
