It’s a changing of the torch

This is a conflation of “changing of the guard” and “passing the torch” (both meaning passing responsibility to someone else).  The context is timely.  John C., a loyal malaphor follower, heard this one at work.  When he asked a fellow employee what he was doing for Thanksgiving, the colleague responded, “I am going to my son’s house this year.  It’s a changing of the torch and I hope it continues.”
