Happy Thanksgiving! Nostalgic for Thanksgivvukah!

Remember Thanksgivvukah? It seems so long ago, 2013 to be exact, when a once-in-77,000 year coincidence brought Thanksgiving to the same night as Chanukah. To celebrate, I used up many Chanukah fabrics to make this unbatted banner....

...with a turkey doing oversight....

...and a million Judaic prints.

I also frantically crocheted flocks of turkey menorahs...

AKA "turkorahs" or "menurkeys," with lightable tails....



And the occasional ethnic headgear..
Every night, I crocheted an additional flame.
For non-Hanukah Thanksgivings, it can be adapted to be a non-menorah, like this peacock turkey. 
The pattern for the crochet turkey/peacock with menorah option is still available as a free download on my pattern page. My blog posts with more details about all of the above are here, here and here. Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy Thanksgiving!
