Here Comes Thanksgivukkah, and Boston Leads the Way


With Chanukah and Thanksgiving Day arriving together next week, the city of Boston is going all out to insure that both holidays get the attention that they deserve. 

The whole city, including the mayor, are all set to celebrate in ways both traditional and new.

The website JewishBoston.com created a special additional website for the occasion and filled it with historical information, recipes, a page for kids, and instructions on setting the Thanksgivukkah table.

They sent a reporter into the street to capture reactions from people in the street and to interview Thomas Menino, Boston's mayor about how they plan to celebrate, pronounce, and spell Thanksgivukkah.

So join in the fun, and enjoy!
