Happy Thanksgivukkah!

That is to say, Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah on the same day!!

"Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations." -Psalm 100:3-4

Now can anyone guess why it's such a special day to have Thanksgiving and Hanukkah land on the same day?

and a bonus question.....

What is similar and Biblical about these two holidays?

No Internet Searching!

Happy Thanksgiving!!  שמחה חנוכה

That is really amazing that Hunakah and Thanksgiving land on the same day this year!

I saw online that Thanksgiving and Hunakah won't land on the same day for another 70,000 years. So I guess that's pretty amazing.

I think what the two holidays have in common is Gratefulness to God for His provision, and the celebration of feasting with family and friends.
