Thanksgivukkah crackers

With the convergence of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving, I found myself in a slightly awkward situation.  I normally give gifts to to my children each night at Hanukkah, but I have company coming for Thanksgiving, and didn't want to create an awkward situation where only my children get gifts, or the equally uncomfortable one of buying a lot of extra gifts.  While I was shopping, I saw a display of Christmas crackers, and decided that would be my solution for that night - I could certainly afford a cracker for everyone, young and old! I'm thankful for all my friends; they deserve a little fun.
I found some that looked fairly neutral, kraft paper with lace trim.  After I got them home, I decided I could kick them up a notch:
It was not hard, and I got to use some punches that don't often get brought out.  I just hope that whatever is inside isn't Christmassy.  Regardless, I will have to do this every time Hanukkah and Thanksgiving happen on the same night.

What a great idea so that no one is left out! Oh, and supposedly it will be another 77,000 years before the 2 holidays overlap so I think you're safe in not having to do this again. lol Happy Chanukah!
