Thanksgivukkah

noun; blending and clipping [Thanksgiving + Hanukkah]
Thanksgivukkah is a pop-culture portmanteau neologism created to describe the convergence of the American holiday of Thanksgiving and the first day of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah on Thursday, November 28, 2013. This is a rare convergence, occurring only a few times in the centuries since the Thanksgiving holiday was created.
 
Analagous to Chrismukkah, which is a portmanteau neologism referring to the merging of the holidays of Christianity's Christmas and Judaism's Hanukkah. Similar neologisms such as Chrismahanukwanzakah and HanuKwanzMas blend Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa.
Etymology : blend of two holidays, Thanksgiving (American) and Hanukkah (Hebrew)
