Not long ago, I wrote about Thanksgivukah, the hybrid holiday this November when American Jews will celebrate two holidays with lots of, uh, food and stuff.
And while I noted that some are spelling it “Thanksgivukkah,” I only recently learned that there are a few completely different linguistic massacres -- sorry, mashups – being committed, er, coined, in advance of this once-in-an-eon holiday.
Happy “Hanukkahgiving,” says a group selling T-shirts ($18) to raise funds for the International Rescue Committee.
Celebrate “Hanugivingkkah” with our greeting cards ($40 for 12), hollers another. (One card features a kippah-wearing Turkey saying – wait for it -- “I pronounce that Gobbleanukkah.”
Clever designs? Not quite. Good causes? Guess so.
But seriously: enough with the terrible portmanteaus.
