Does this mean that if your turkey catches fire while being deep-fried that it will burn for eight days and eight nights?

flondrix: almandot: Jewish calendar. It's a lunar calendar so shifts compared to our solar calendar every year but not starts on the 25th day of the month Kislev every year

So, how early can Hanukkah get on the Gregorian calendar?

This looks like one of the earliest. Only went back a few decades on an online converter but earliest I could find was nov 28th in 1994 and a nov 30th some other year. I do remember being fairly pissed when it was as late as Christmas though and having to wait that long for presents. ;) #jewproblems #alsohitler

DominaNY: "Thanksgiving has nothing to do with genocide/oppression, unless you consider the mere presence of European immigrants in North America to equate to that, in which case, whatevs"

Hmm, anti-semitic AND insensitive to reality for millions of Native American's history and rude to women, all wrapped up in big ball of insecurity and lack of ability for critical thinking.

Nasty boy, now go flap to your hatred and pathetic sense of superiority.

Thanksgiving has EVERYTHING to do with genocide/oppression. DUH.

Well, no, I was just being rude to YOU, without respect to your sex. And not out of anti-semitism (I adore the Yiddishkeit). The "translated into English" wasn't because of the Yiddish, it was because you can't write very well, and you misspelled menurkey, which complicated my search to find out what you were on about. Don't screw with my googling, and I won't point out your literary shortcomings.

Also, you're gonna need to come up with a better argument tying Thanksgiving to genocide than "DUH." My argument is a) the Plymouth Colony settlers didn't displace any Native folk in that first year ashore, and they hosted the local Wampanoags at their harvest festival feast (the first actual "Thanksgiving" wasn't celebrated until 1623). b) Thanksiving is a secularized religious holiday that generically substitutes for a harvest feast. Unlike, say, Columbus Day, it doesn't specifically celebrate the European presence in North America; that's just associated with it because of the misremembered history of the "First Thanksgiving." Which was, as I said, a mitzvah.

So, you have any counter to that argument, beyond "duh?"

You kind of have to admire a celebration that traditionally includes ritualized pyromania, a bevy of fried foods, and the teaching of children how to gamble.

abhorrent1: This is a big deal why?

Hanukkah's supposed to be the Jewish Christmas.  They're disrespecting Christians by moving it farther away.

Hanukkah, oh Hanukkah
Come light the menorah
Let's have a turkey
And pass the potato
Gather round the table
We'll cut you some meat
Spinning tops to play with
And pass the string beans
And while we are eating
The candles are burning low
One for each night
So take a big bite
To remind us of days long ago
One for each night
So take a big bite
To remind us of days long ago

Well, in my family the leftover turkey lasts for eight nights anyway. Does it have to be cooked in oil this year?
