You know, if you brine the nasty dry turkey you don't need cranberry sauce.

Existentially Agonized Editor:
Mmmm, frying mashed taters into latkes w/ symbolic Hanukkah oil post-Thanksgiving.

Damnit, now I'm hungry. Again. Just never stops.

Fuck, make me stop clicking:
Despite the popularity of latkes and tradition of eating them during Hanukkah, they are hard to come by in stores or restaurants in Israel, having been largely replaced by the Hanukkah doughnut due to local economic factors, convenience and the influence of trade unions.

The Doughnut:
The doughnut is deep-fried, filled with jelly or custard, and then topped with powdered sugar. At Hanukkah, Jews observe the custom of eating fried foods in commemoration of the miracle associated with the Temple oil.
That is a holiday!

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
