From Cynthia Moody, Community Counselor in Nashville TN:
Now that Halloween is over, we are already talking about the holidays! One in particular: Thanksgiving….
This year, Thanksgiving presents a very interesting fact for our generation… since President Lincoln establish Thanksgiving in 1863, this is the first time that Hanukkah will start the day of Thanksgiving. Mathematically speaking, this will not happen again for another 77,798 years! The reason for this is because the Jewish calendar is very slowly getting out of sync with the solar calendar, at a rate of 4 days per 1000 years!
So, weather you are celebrating Thanksgiving or Hanukkah on November 28th 2013, just know and be proud to be a part of a very interesting history!
HAPPY THANKSNUKKAH everyone!
