Combines: Easter Sunday and the Passover Seder into a single, unleavened spring fling. Happens on: Sunday, April 11, 2123. While Easter Sunday falls within the week-long celebration of Passover most years (including 2014), April 11, 2123 is the next time the two holidays begin at exactly the same time. Celebrate by: Hiding Easter eggs around the lawn and afikoman around the house. Getting matzoh from the Easter Bunny. Debating who would win in the ultimate miracle match-up: Jesus or Moses?
Combines: Thanksgiving day and the first night of Hanukkah—two freedom-tastic feasts in one! Happens on: Thursday, November 28, 2013 (the first Thanksgivukkah since 1888, and the last one for about 79,000 years). Celebrate by: Lighting some candles on your Menurkey (designed by nine-year-old Asher Weintraub, after a Kickstarter campaign raised over $48,000 for him to create it). Fressing out on a Manishewitz-brined turkey with challah apple stuffing (enjoy leftovers for eight miraculous days). Not eating pork...for TWO reasons!
Combines: Christmas Eve and the first night of Hanukkah for an inter-faith evening of presents. Ah, the Challahdays! Happens on: Saturday, December 24, 2016 (though Christmas and Hanukkah often overlap, and may be bundled anyway by savvy advertisers). Celebrate by: Trying to fit in your Chrismukkah caroling before sundown. Explaining to your boss that the 12 days of Christmas + the 8 days of Hanukkah entitle you to 20 days off this month (sue for religious discrimination if she does not oblige). Eating honey-baked gefilte fish.

Good Friday the 13th
Combines: the religious thoughtfulness of Good Friday with the superstitious dread of Friday the 13th. Happens on: April 13, 2063. Celebrate by: Going to church without stepping on any cracks, walking under ladders, or crossing any black cats. Buying $800 million in Easter chocolates to counter the $800 million dollars in business lost every Friday the 13th. Finally selling your religious-horror screenplay, "The Last Temptation of Jason."
The Groundhog Bowl
Combines: Super Bowl XLVIII and Groundhog day 2014 into one miraculously lucky/unlucky Sunday! Happens on: Sunday, February 2nd, 2014. Celebrate by: Kicking off your Super Bowl party at 7:25 a.m. with a side bet on whether Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow. Preparing a themed spread of assorted nuts, berries, and wild grasses. Ultimately blaming the victory (or defeat) of your team on whether there'll be six more weeks of winter.
