Due to a rare synchronicity this year between the Jewish calendar and the Gregorian calendar, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah briefly overlap. It has been called "Thanksgivukkah." It hasn't happened since 1888, which is right around the time movies were being invented, and it won't happen again for 77,798 years, by which time all bountiful celebrations of religious freedom will be abstracted way beyond recognition, and Thanksgiving movies and lists thereof will be equally ubiquitous. In the meantime, here are a few movie-endorsed rituals with which you may wish to celebrate the hybrid-holiday season, or at least endure it.
1. Stuff the house with family and friends, don a cozy sweater, and resume pining for your wife's sister as you have been for months. (Not recommended.) As seen in: Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), perhaps the ultimate Thanksgivukkah movie because it's bracketed by Thanksgiving scenes but also is a Woody Allen classic so you can think of it as a Jewish holiday too.
2. Travel for three grueling days with an irritating stranger, figure out that he's all alone in this world without you, feel guilty, rescue him, and bring him home to meet the family. (Not recommended unless the stranger is the late John Candy.) As seen in: Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987), a cherishable John Hughes comedy with Steve Martin as an uptight executive and Candy as a gregarious salesman, stuck together on an obstacle-laden trek from New York to Chicago.
3. Host an intimate holiday dinner with three of the men in your life, like some scene from The Bachelorette, but much realer. (Recommended with caution.) As seen in: She's Gotta Have It, Spike Lee's vital, hilarious 1986 feature debut, which happened also to be a feminist sex comedy.
