This Thanksgivukah let's recognize that we all have an incredible light within that only grows when we shine it outwards, and not only shine it but share it, so that it illuminates both our lives and the lives of those around us.
I spent most of my childhood in rural Ohio where there were few Jews and where people presumed I was Christian each Christmas. Everyone said "Merry Christmas." Inwardly, I flinched. Outwardly, I usually smiled back and parroted the same holiday greeting.
Turkey themed menorahs and pumpkin kugels are all wonderful -- but diluting both festivals and forcing a shared message of "gratitude" or "spirit" is irresponsible.
