2013 marks the first time since the late 1800s that Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same day. This rare but awesome occurrence has been dubbed “Thanksgivukkah” (our own Mayor Menino has even officially dubbed Thursday, November 28, 2013 “Thanksgivukkah” in the city of Boston!). I think this graphic sums it up:
Here at Northeastern, our Hillel organization will be hosting a pre-Thanksgivukkah feast and food drive. As most of us will be off campus for Thanksgivukkah, Hillel’s party takes place on Monday, November 25 at 6:30PM. Full details (including the list of acceptable food donations) can be found on the Facebook event page.
