Thanksgiving and Hanukkah are Celebrated on the Same Day in 2013!


November 28, 2013 is going to be extra special this year!

Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights which is usually celebrated in December, has fallen on Thanksgiving. This once-in-a-lifetime event will not happen again for 79,000 years. (The last time this happened was in 1888.) Both holidays celebrate religious freedom.
