Hanukkah started at sundown yesterday (November 27), so today is the first day. It last coincided with Thanksgiving in 1888, and it won't again for over 77,000 years. I don't think we'll make it. (And read this article to learn when, and why, Hanukkah will coincide with other holidays.)
I hope you get to enjoy your day with family and friends.

Today, you may be celebrating . . .
- Black Friday (because apparently, it now begins on Thursday)
- anything else!
Whatever it may be, I hope you have a great day and a great weekend.
