Tart and sweet come together in this Thanksgivingukah mashup.
There’s another Hanukkah miracle of sorts to contemplate this year. In 2013, for the first time, and not again for several thousands of years, Hanukkah converges with Thanksgiving.
Actually, if you look a little closer, it’s not that simple. As we are the people of the book, I did some reading.

Given that, we only have to wait until 2070, when the first night of Hanukkah falls precisely the evening of Thanksgiving.
