Thanksgivukkah with B&M Catering
What is Thanksgivukkah?
This is the name given to the phenomenon of the convergence of the American holiday of Thanksgiving with the first day of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah on Thursday, November 28,2013.
The last time it happened since Thanksgiving was declared a U.S. federal holiday by President Abraham Lincoln was 125 years ago, in 1888. The next time it happens will be over 70,000 years from now..
A recent article in The Washington Post stated, “For many Jewish Americans, this is no trivial convergence, but a once-in-an-eternity opportunity to simultaneously celebrate two favorite holidays, one quintessentially American, the other quintessentially Jewish.”
Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston said he would proclaim November 28, 2013, “Thanksgivukkah,” saying through a spokeswoman: “This is a big deal, a once-in-a-lifetime event.”
Over here at B&M Catering, we wanted to recognize the event by sharing some of our favorite holiday recipes, along with favorite recipes of some of our friends and colleagues.
