Happy Chanukah and Happy Thanksgiving or simply, Happy Thanksgivi-kah!

November is extra festive this year with the first day of Chanukah and Thanksgiving Day falling together; the last time this happened was 113 years ago!

Chanukah (also known as the Festival of Lights) starts at sundown on Wednesday, November 27 this year. So when you carve that turkey Thursday, many families will also be lighting those beautiful Menorahs

These holidays actually complement each other quite well and it’s really no a stretch to celebrate them together. Both holidays honor heritage and tradition. We also celebrate the miracle of these past events and the ability to celebrate them freely without the fear of persecution. As we are sitting down to eat our generous dinners, watching those football games, spinning those dreidels and opening presents, lets appreciate how truly fortunate we are.

If you’re looking for more Chanukah inspiration (and tasty treats), stop by Byerly’s St. Louis Park – our kosher bakery has been hard at work making everything from challah to dreidel cookies and our kosher meat department is your one-stop-shop for these eight days.

In the tradition of celebrating eight days of Chanukah, here are eight things I am certainly grateful for  ...

  1. Wonderful family and friends
  2. Good health
  3. Freedom
  4. Peace
  5. Awesome pets that enhance and enrich our lives
  6. Hobbies that bring joy
  7. Careers that bring forth personal growth
  8. Great foods, including sweet potato latkes and grandma’s home-made sage stuffing

From my family to yours, have a wonderful holiday and enjoy the foods and blessings of the season.
