Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

I am running out of time this week for my blog writing, but not for writing a thankful note to my readers. Readers that I know and readers that I do not know, and for the very faithful ones who make comments regularly.

I am truly grateful for your presence in my life.

THANK YOU, GRACIAS, MERCI, DANKE, ARIGATO and, in my native tongue, DZIEKUJE!

This year Thanksgiving falls on the same day as Jewish Hanukkah. Supposedly such convergence will not happen again for about 80,000 years. How this was calculated beats me, but one thing is sure – I will not be around for the next time! So we will celebrate this year the combination of both important holidays -THANKSGIVUKKAH! Somebody came up with this tongue twisting new word – cute enough to name some babies born at this time of this year, I suspect.

Something unexpected and amusing happened this morning. A daily blog written by my artist friend (painter) GC Myers (gcmyers.com/)  arrived as usual in my mailbox – thank you GC! It included Thanksgivukkah Anthem, a humorous musical creation by the Jewish singing a capella group Six13, that I am delighted to share with you.

Have a very joyful Thanksgivukkah Day!

    I’m a great believer in the power of gratitude, a key to peace and happiness…my wife and I loved the Thanksgivukkah song. Laughed out loud.

    I laughed out loud too! Loved it!

      Great, and many thanks for telling me that!

      I am having hard time to believe that it is December already – maybe because over here it is not so visible as in other places.

      With best wishes to you and your family – Alicja
