Happy Thanksgivukkah! Lets Celebrate With A Turkey Dreidel (Video)
Thanksgiving is just few days away. We all have our traditions.
But did you know that this Thanksgiving falls on the Second day of Hanukkah?
Happy Thanksgivukkah! Or Happy Hanu-giving!
This will only happen Once in our your lifetime. Looking up the calculations, it won’t happen again for another 80,000 years! ( I’m not good with numbers)
This year, thanks to an extremely rare convergence, Thanksgiving (Nov. 28) falls during the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights. Some are calling it “Hanu-giving.” Others prefer “Thanksgivukkah.”
I’m not claiming to be s Jewish scholar. While doing some research I found some interesting facts. Hanukkah starts on the same day every year on the Hebrew calendar. But since the months of that calendar have only 29 or 30 days, the Jewish year falls roughly 11 days short of the 365-day Gregorian calendar. To keep everything in sync an extra “leap month” is added seven times every 19 years. That made Hanukkah unusually early this year. Combine that with an extremely late Thanksgiving, and boom! Thanksgivukkah! It falls on the second night of Hanukkah.
