CLEVELAND, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- What happens when the first day of the Hanukkah celebration also happens to fall on the same day as Thanksgiving (which won't happen again for another 70,000+ flippin' years)? You've got a whole new hybrid: Thanksgivukkah, where many families will be celebrating two traditions. This holiday mashup is a novelty and will likely feature original menus (think turkey with potato latkes) and accents such as the menurkey (turkey menorah). justWink, the free smartphone app by American Greetings Corporation is joining in the spirit of this once in a lifetime "super holiday" and offering fun and funny digital Thanksgivukkah greetings sure to help you gobblenosh.

The awesomely creative minds at justWink invite you to bring your dreidels to Thanksgiving dinner as you slip on your best elastic waist pants and prepare to eat your freakin' faces off! Even better than all that turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes (okay, maybe not better...who are we kidding?) is the fresh new batch of Thanksgiving (and Thanksgivukkah) cards justWink has whipped up for the occasion. We've got the perfect card for everyone from your sweet little bubbie to your smokin' hot honey. So grab some grub, toast to the pilgrims, Indians and Maccabees and start sending already!

For those who don't like their holidays to mix like the food on their plate, justWink offers a selection of digital, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah cards. The justWink Thanksgiving digital card collection ranges from light meat to dark meat, with 24 holiday designs in the app to celebrate whatever or whoever is on one's thankful list. Looking for a good ol' fashioned Turkey Day card with a little extra sumthin' sumthin'? The gems from our traditional "light meat" collection are as sweet and mushy as grandma's homemade pumpkin pie... AND (unlike your creepy, old uncle) guaranteed to offend no one!

Like your holiday cards to have a little extra punch? Check out the super fun numbers from our hilarious, and sometimes (dare we say it) raunchTAStic, "dark meat" collection. They'll have friends and family members rolling on the floor and clutching their stomachs in pain...from all the LAUGHTER that is (no relation to Aunt Ethel's bean casserole, of course)!

How 'bout some hot sauce with that turkey? Our batch of lovey-dovey Thanksgiving goodness is perfect for when you've got some extra-special "thanking" to do... Whether you're looking for warm and fuzzy, or straight-up sizzling, one of these babies will have just the right amount of heat.

"Every holiday gives us, at justWink, an excuse to shake things up," said Melissa Jamison, brand manager for justWink. "Thanksgiving is such an amazing opportunity to give thanks for all we're appreciative for, and we think there's no better way to show that love than with laughs."

Hanukkah will bring Jewish families together to light the candles on their menorahs and welcome the Festival of Lights. If eight days of lighting fires and munching on chocolate coins sounds like a rockin' good time, you've got "Hanukkah party animal" written all over you! Go forth and send justWink Hanukkah cards. With four brand spankin new cards this year, we'll gladly help you ring in those eight crazy nights.

The justWink app can be downloaded for free for Android, iPhone, NOOK, Kindle Fire and Windows 8, giving users 24/7 access to the complete collection of digital cards that can be sent via text, email, or Facebook. The app now contains more than 500 cards as well as the ability to add signatures (or doodles) and photos to cards and Facebook-powered birthday reminders. iPhone and Android users can personalize any card and send it directly to the lucky recipient's real mailbox – we call it Real Mail in the app!
