Thanksgivukkah and the Menorah


The Menurkey…please head to the site to hear the Menurkey song.  It is worth the visit!

The convergence of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving: It last happened in 1888 and it won’t happen again for another 77, 798 years. For many Jewish Americans, this is not a trivial occasion, but rather a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate two holidays—one quintessentially American, the other wholly Jewish—at once.”


Ok…this is officially the most unusual post for a good southern Baptist girl turned Presbyterian.  I am a but mesmerized by the Menurkey that I found when looking for chic Menorahs.  I was talking with a client about her Hanukkah decorations and I decided to share some of my favorite ones I have seen.
