Obviously, you will eat cranberry sauce with your latkes. Obviously. But what else will you do to celebrate this unusual meeting of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah? Here, a little inspiration.
The year was 1888. When what? you may ask. When Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah last landed on the same calendar day. Now, 125 years later, the great crossover is happening again. Thanks to the Twittersphere and the brilliant nine-year-old who created the Menurkey, Thanksgivukkah is officially an unofficial holiday.
Ever in search of another reason to throw a party, we’ve scoured the web for a few Thanksgivukkah dishes to share – and landed on four chef-approved recipes from Refinery29. “Luckily, there’s some crossover between traditional Hanukkah fare and the stuff usually found on the Thanksgiving table,” Refinery29 says. “Looking for latkes? Swap out the spuds for sweet potatoes. What about apple pie? Try Concord-grape-jelly-filled doughnuts instead.”
