ANOTHER "WND EXCLUSIVE" THIS TIME ON THE GULLABILITY OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC!! THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN FOR ANOTHER 79,000 YEARS!!
THIS WON'T HAPPEN FOR ANOTHER 79,000 YEARS
Americans gobble up rare convergence of two major events
Move over Christmas.
The big holiday buzz this year surrounds the convergence of two other major holidays, an event that won’t take place for another 79,000 years.
What’s happening is that on Thursday, Nov. 28, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah overlap for the first time since 1888, creating what many are calling “Thanksgivukkah.”
Dana Gitell, a care provider for the elderly at Boston’s Hebrew SeniorLife, decided to celebrate and market the rare occasion, so she came up with the mashed-up holiday name and registered the domain, a Twitter account and a Facebook page.
“After seeing the response to the Facebook page, I realized there was a retail opportunity,” Gitell said. “People seemed to want a way to express their excitement for this phenomenon. Additionally, I saw promoting this convergence as an opportunity to really celebrate the Jewish-American experience and give thanks for America as a bastion of religious freedom.”
Among the items Gitell is hawking is a Woodstock-style T-shirt with the catchphrase “8 Days of Light, Liberty and Latkes.” Latkes are potato pancakes often served throughout Hanukkah.
Now Jews across the country are talkin’ turkey as they jump on the bandwagon.
Asher Weintraub, a 9-year-old boy in New York City, has created and trademarked a “Menurkey,” which is a menorah in the shape of a turkey, and he’s selling ceramic and plaster versions online, ranging from $50 to $150.
His filmmaker parents, Caroline Baron and Anthony Weintraub, are helping their 4th-grade son market the product online, saying, “What began as a way to encourage one of our son’s ideas has grown into a mission – whomever we tell about the Menurkey smiles and asks questions, and it’s a great way to discuss these two holidays in which we’re thankful for all we’ve been given. What better way to celebrate this strange but amazing occurrence with your family than with this funny and fascinating conversation starter?”
