Turkey laktka anyone?

Thanksgivukkah is a holiday that occurs when Hanukah and Thanksgiving fall on the same day. This phenomenon hasn’t occurred in 100 years and will only occur once in the next 70,000 years.

George Washington is known as the father of Thanksgivukkah. After a critical victory over the British at Saratoga in the fall of 1777, he celebrated this holiday. thanksgiving2
