Thanksgivukkah is coming!

This Thanksgiving is a special date in history
.
.
.
more mathematically unique than it usually is with each passing year
.
.
.
because there won't be another Thanksgiving quite like this one again
.
.
.
in your lifetime (or rather...)
.
.
.
for 77,798 more years.
.
.
.
No joke.
.
.
.
In 2013, Thanksgiving lands on exactly the same date as the first night of Hanukkah.
The last time that this coincidental occurrence happened was back in 1888. (Which doesn't seem like too long ago, compared to the 77,798 year wait for the next one!)

Some people have special plans to celebrate the traditions of both holidays on November 28. Bakeries are offering once-in-a-lifetime combinations, like Menurkey or Challurkey (fun words to say!).


Check out some of these cool Thanksgivukkah ideas!
