By now you've heard some of the hype surrounding the upcoming once in a thousand lifetimes convergence of Thanksgiving with the first day of Chanukah on Thursday, November 28.
It last happened in 1888 and won't happen again for another 77,798 years. If you assume a lifetime is 120 years, that's actually 648 lifetimes until menurkeys (menorah + turkey) appear on the scene again.
We know you wouldn't expect Jewish Humor Central to ignore this phenomenon, so today we're starting our Thanksgivukkah coverage of the superholiday with a song written for the occasion by Lauren Mayer, an award-winning songwriter, professional entertainer and music teacher who entertained us last year with A Good Old Down Home Country Chanukah.
