Okay, I guess you Canadians can talk about how great your Thanksgiving was last month, and others, you can just talk about eating and… I don’t care. Something.
Holiday travel fun fact: Did you know the TSA will let you take your own liquor cabinet on a plane? Yes ma’am.
If you’re going to be flying anywhere over Thanksgiving or Hanukkah or Thanksukkah or Christmas, that shit’s gonna be stressful. But even though there are lots of things you can’t take on a plane anymore, you can still apparently bring quite a lot of alcohol on board, as long as it’s in the right containers. And those containers are small hotel minibar sized liquor bottles, no more than 3 oz each and in a clear Ziploc bag. Some TSA person might even give you a high five.
In a once in a lifetime event that not even the ancient Hebrews could have predicted, this year is the first time since 1888 that Thanksgiving will overlap with Hanukkah, meaning the two holidays will combine like Voltron to form the mechaholiday of Thanksukkah. Just make sure your turkey is kosher and your unleavened bread comes with cranberry sauce.
Oh, and the above Thanksukkah menorah was made by a 9 year old boy with a 3D printer. What holiday spirit.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a long-standing tradition and it’s a pretty fun, innocent affair. But this year, some students from Tufts University found something unusual in the shower of confetti that graced the parade— pieces of confidential Nassau County police documents, with enough information intact to identify police officers by name and Social Security number.
It’s only been a few months since Texas raised the interstate speed limit to 85 mph, on Thanksgiving day, holiday traffic plus the nation’s highest speed limit plus dense fog near the city of Beaumont all contributed to a gigantic 140 car pile-up that left two dead and over 80 injured.
