The last time Thanksgiving coincided with the first day of Chanukah was on November 29, 1888.
The next time the two will coincide would be when Thanksgiving falls on Chanukah eve in the year 2070. That would repeat itself in 2165.
So you can see this is an event that only happens once in a lifetime, if at all.
It was worth having Eytan draw a picture to commemorate this event. I asked him one day to draw a turkey menorah – also being called a Menorkey. He went up to his room and came down a while later with this fun drawing. We’re hanging it up at our Thankgivingkah dinner. Feel free to share this drawing with others who may be celebrating Chanukah on Thanksgiving this year.
