"Thanksgivingkah…a new word in our vocabulary…" 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday)


Some call it Thanksgivekkah, some call  it Chanukah, others call it Hanukkah
 and still others call it Thanksgiving. On Kaua'i  we call it Chanukaua'i.
Judith calls it Thanksgivingkah. No matter what you call it, the bottom is  we
all have  something (s) to be thankful for. Gobble Tov!
Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst N.Y. and has work in the ophthalmology
field of medicine. for almost 35 years.

Thanksgivingkah…a new word in our vocabular

This will be the first and last time we will see such a word that has been going around the universe this week; the clashing of the two holidays, Thanksgiving and Chanukah happened many thousand years ago and will not again happen in our lifetime .  

Our unusual celebration with family and friends started with lighting the Chanukah candles and enjoying the traditional turkey festivities.  Along with our turkey, stuffing and squash came latkas and Chanukah foods.   Both joyous  celebrations to enjoy!

So for this year and this year only…Happy Chanukah, Thanksgiving and Thanksgivingkah to all our friends Jewish and non Jew alike …enjoying the Festival of Lights.

Call it anything you want, just don't call me late for dinner. Bet you never heard that one before! ;D)

Fun to celebrate a once in many life times occasion of Thanks-givikah. I am glad it is not possible for Thanksgiving & Yom Kipper to fall on the same day!

good one Harmony, wouldn't that be ironic, a fasting holiday on the same day as a feast!?
