Menorah + Turkey = Menurkey

This year Hannukkah and Thanksgiving will overlap – for the first time since the 1800s. And they won’t be celebrated on the same day again until year 79811. So, obviously, some extra-festive celebrating is in store. Behold: the Menurkey. As the centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table, this turkey-shaped menorah pays homage to both holidays. So break out the latkes and pumpkin pie, then light the Menurkey. It’s nearly time to commemorate this once-in-about-2,000-lifetimes experience.
