Thanksgivukkah?

Seriously?

I mean, there's "living with paradox" and then there's just being incoherent.

Viewed through the lens of colonialism, these celebrate opposite actions.

If Ayn Rand and Karl Marx had the same birthday, could we just call it Four-Letter-Last-Name-Social-Theorist Day?

I totally think we should celebrate Four-Letter-Last-Name-Social-Theorist-Day. Could be a hoot. Viewed through the lens of gratitude, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah jibe pretty well.

Or it could just be a funny recognition that because one holiday is on the Gregorian calendar, and the other is calculated from a Lunisolar calendar, this conjunction of holiday dates only occurs every 70,000 years.
