How to Celebrate Thanksgivukkah as a Couple

Gobble Tov! How to Celebrate Thanksgivukkah as a Couple

It won't come around for another 78,000 or so years, so you can bet that Thanksgivukkah should and will be a big deal. If you're lucky enough to be spending Nov. 28 with your significant other and only one of you is Jewish, the Thanksgiving-Hanukkah hybrid is the perfect chance to merge two celebrations.

Here are a few tips, so you can honor traditions from every side.

  • The food: Pumpkin latkes, anyone? Get creative in the kitchen, and cook up something representative of both cultures, like latke turkey sandwiches or latkes topped with cranberry chutney. The options are endless!
  • The traditions: It's totally fine to celebrate Thanksgiving like you normally would, except this time around, you can tweak activities to inject a little Hanukkah spirit. For instance, you could light the menorah at sundown and enjoy turkey afterward, or carry out the ritual between dinner and dessert.
  • The day after: As wonderful as a proper Thanksgivukkah seems, you could always host a Hanukkah celebration the next night, considering that the holiday lasts eight days.

Thanksgivukkah's a once-in-a lifetime chance, so take advantage! And remember: as long as there's a balance, you won't go wrong.
