In case you missed it, November 28 is both Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah. To celebrate the once-in-70,000-years event known as Thanksgivukkah, nine-year-old New Yorker Asher Weintraub designed the Menurkey pictured above. Yes, that's a turkey-shaped menorah. The industrious kid sketched the plaster lamp himself using a 3-D modeling platform, and a Kickstarter campaign funded the production (we have a feeling his parents helped a little bit, too). You can buy it at the Jewish Museum for $50. Happy Thanksgivukkah, folks!
