As we're gorging on Halloween candy, as we're gnawing on a turkey leg, as we're eating cookies and carving roasts and drinking eggnog and cider and champagne, it's easy to think: it really is the most wonderful time of the year. It cannot get better than this.

Oh yes, it can.

Because this year, we have a new holiday on our hands. This holiday is Thanksgivukkah.

Thanksgivukkah is the one-in-70,000-ish-years holiday in which Thanksgiving and the first night of Hanukkah fall on the same day. And, like any other holiday, it deserves a celebration. It deserves a party. It deserves a feast to go along with it.

We and our friends at Serious Eats have challenged each other to a friendly Thanksgivukkah competition -- à la the great Cherpumple-off of 2012 -- to come up with the most clever Hanukkah/Thanksgiving mash-up recipe. And we need your help.

Leave your ideas in the comments for the ultimate Thanksgivukkah dish -- mains, sides, desserts, all fair game! -- and help us out-Thanksgivukkah the fine folks at Serious Eats. We'll build our mashup based on your brilliant brainstorming, and they'll do the same. Check back on November 4th for the big reveal. Let the festivities begin!

So tell us: What would your ultimate Thanksgiving-Hanukkah mashup recipe be?
