It’s Thanksgivukkah! 😀 Today is Thanksgiving, and also the first day of Hanukkah. OK, Hanukkah started yesterday at sundown, but today is still technically the first day of Hanukkah in the Jewish calendar (until sundown, that is- that’s when the second day will start). 

For those of you unaware, Hanukkah is a Jewish 8-day holiday that celebrates when the Jews got their religious freedom from the Greeks. According to the story, the Jews in a temple needed light for 8 days, but there was only enough candle oil for 1 day. But then, a miracle occurred (literally!)- the light stayed for 8 days! That’s why Hanukkah lasts 8 days.

Thanksgiving, as you probably know, celebrates when the Pilgrims came to North America, and met the Native Americans. They ate for about 3 days. If this had not happened, then the history of the United States would probably be radically different.

Thanksgivukkah won’t occur for about another 70,000 years, so don’t miss it this year.

Peace out, and May a Happy Thanksgivukkah be with you! 😀
