Meet Conan O'Brien's Turkey Dreidel [VIDEO]

With Thanksgivukkah nearly upon us (well, our American readers), it seems everyone is wanting to talk about this once in ever 78,000 years phenomenon.

To familiarize yourself with the subject, check out our Thanksgivukkah feature here.

Also, if you're looking for any Thanksgivukkah-themed holiday gifts, check out our Essential Hanukkah Gift Guide, chock full of awesome giveaways!

Even Conan O’Brien is getting in the spirit, putting a little “spin” on the traditional dreidel. Just remember to place your bets before the hilarity ensues!

I won't spoil the video for you, but suffice it to say, a spinning turkey/dreidel game is, I'd say, the ultimate expression of the forthcoming Thanksgivukkah holiday. Thanks, Conan.

Thanksgivukkah, which my computer is not pointing out as a spelling mistake, is the very rarest of occurrences and Shalom Life has you covered in all sorts of features.

In addition to the Gift Guide, there’s even our story on the ultimate expression of the blending of Thanksgiving and Chanukkah: a rap battle.

One word of advice: expect lines at the local doughnut shop and plenty of fights for bags of potatoes at the grocery store.
