This year, Thanksgiving is November 28; coincidently, November 28 this year also marks the first full day of Hanukkah, or the Jewish festival of lights, whose date varies every year based on the lunar calendar.
They’re calling it Thanksgivukkah – what else could they call it? – and it’s an event so rare it won’t happen for another 77,798 years!
For Jewish Americans, the occurrence is a fortunate one, offering a chance to celebrate both their country and their religious heritage. After all, Hanukkah celebrates the ancient Jewish victory for religious freedom over the Romans, and Thanksgiving celebrates those Pilgrims who were looking for religious freedom in their country, the New World. It’s a match made in heaven – or at least, one made in turkey and latkes, the traditional Jewish potato pancake made in celebration of the day 🙂
So if you are Jewish, or have Jewish friends, wish them a Happy Thanksgivukkah; it will put smiles on their faces, we guarantee it.
