Two weeks from tonight at sundown, a rare event will take place. (And no, that’s not code for us being sober Turkey Day this year, either).
Instead, we’re referring to a truly unique moment in history. Not since 1888 have Chanukah and Thanksgiving converged. And it’s not going to occur again for another 77,798 years. We probably won’t be around for that one, so we’re going to really make this year count.
That’s why we’re so excited about our new Chanukah sweater from GeltFiend. In the tradition of decades of ugly Christmas sweaters, these range from head-turning hilarious to hey-we’d-actually-wear-that!
Adorned with dreidels, menorahs and/or Hassidic snowmen, each sweater is made from 95% acrylic, 5% spandex, the official fabric of tacky holiday apparel for decades. But they’re actually more pleasant to the touch than similar sweaters. And the spandex makes for a much more form-flattering appearance.
Because we’re not sure the world is ready for our Santa belly poking out of our dreidel-covered cardigan.
Even that’s too much convergence for us.
