‪@chrisrockoz: The five stages of waking up:
1. Denial
2. Bargaining
3. Anger
4. Depression
5. Coffee
We’re thankful for Thanksgiving, and the break from this routine – minus the coffee. We never take a break from coffee.

‪@CollegeCandy: You won’t believe how many calories there are in #Thanksgiving Dinner (or how far you have to walk to burn it off.) ‪http://bit.ly/19LJBAF 
Say it with us: who cares? (Okay, okay – we’ll go for a walk after.) #eating #alltheturkey 

@Allrecipes: When Thanksgiving leads straight into Hanukkah, you get the greatest food holiday of all time! http://ow.ly/qMFa8 #Thanksgivukkah
Hello, eight days of light, liberty, and latkes. Our dream come true.

‪@BravoTopChef: What’s on your #Thanksgiving menu? Might we suggest this bacon mac & cheese? ‪http://bravo.ly/1cI9xQQ  ‪#TopChef
Uh… yes. Yes, you may. While you’re at it, what else would you like to suggest? We’re all ears.

‪@HuffingtonPost: Stuffing cookies are the new pumpkin pie ‪http://huff.to/1bMO8rn  ‪#Thanksgiving

The fact that Thanksgiving is this week is reason enough to celebrate. But throwing Hanukkah into the mix? Things are about to get wild.

1. What comes first? Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, of course.

2. A scarf for the chilly drive and an empire-waist dress for an impending full stomach.

3. Setting the table can be tedious. But it’s not often the dining room gets a chance to be the center of attention.

4. Forget the turkey. We want to skip right to the dessert.

5. After this year, Thanksgivukkah might not happen for another for 79,000. So we’re going all out.

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.
