The Menurkey!

The Jewish calendar is lunar, while the Gregorian calendar is solar. This means the Jewish calendar has a "leap month," and holidays can drift up to a month.

May commit Copy Wrong by fetching 1 of 2 Thanksgivukkah Ts offered by Cafe Press in recent days --

Grumpty CatTM sayz 2013 is not a "leap year", and nor are latkes "Jewish fried pancakes". Sheesh, when will some HP do a little homework...or at least quit taking such literary shortcuts?

Dunkirk?  Since when are Jews big sailors?

Turkey is kosher... maybe.

Also, Festivus follows the Gregorian calendar.

Hanukkah began at sunset yesterday.

And the fried turkeys?
They're ours!

I smoked a turkey yesterday. Am I one of the chosen now?

ecx.images-amazon.com

This is the weirdest thingy I've purchased in a long time but so far it's amazing.

It's an Oster electric smoker/roaster. Apparently they don't make them anymore. It smoked a turkey beautifully. Also roasted potatoes nicely. It gets hot and the cord is about 10 inches long and it can only handle a 12 foot 14/3 extension cord or shorter. But I'm going to use this until it melts...smoked fished...mesquite smoked chicken...

So what's the Muslim Stalingrad?

I like how the article states that Jews everywhere are gearing up for Thanksgivvukkah.  Considering that Thanksgiving is only celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November in the US, "everywhere" may be a bit of an overstatement.  And shouldn't it be Thanksgiviuchah?

"Jewish Dunkirk" is the name of my Yiddish Johnny Horton tribute band, along with our hit single, "Sink the Bismarckmitzvah".

Your constant attempts to own all other traditions as though everything originated within Judaism is silly. Especially considering Judaism didn't reach cohesion until the 6th Century B.C.(E.)

Looks like they still make them, but they're not easy to find online. A quick trip to Google Shopping reveals as the first entry that Meijers has them for 49 bucks plus shipping.

Oops, nvm, form the wiki "The Portland, Oregon-based Fred Meyer chain (now a subsidiary of Kroger) is unrelated to Meijer." Meijers still rules.

Yeah, I only wish. This item, at least, is available for mail-order. At that price, I might just get one, since regular grills and smokers are verboten at my apartment complex.

All other traditions?
The Puritans required two languages in their colleges. One was latin. Care to the other?
The Puritans instituted a fall harvest festival in the Americas after specifically rejecting the traditional Harvest Home, with its pagan roots, in England. Why would they do that?
When they codified their laws, what was their specific model?
They even seriously considered making Hebrew their official language.
They referred to their colony as "New Israel".

Nope. No connection at all with Sukkot.

Thumbing their nose at England leads to the possible co-opting of the tools necessary to effectively set oneself apart from that which you left behind. But they had no illusions that they were God's old Israel who broke the covenant and turned away, but rather identified themselves as:
