Turkey Day is Finally Here!!!

 I'd like to wish each and every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah! Do you happen to know just how often the two holidays share the same day? I had to do a bit of detective work (read web search) and found an interesting tid-bit of information.

"The last time the confluence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah happened was 1888. This year it occurs Nov. 28, which is the second night of the eight-day Hanukkah celebration.
The next time it will occur? Hold on to your dreidels: By some calculations, it won't be for another 79,043 years, thanks to disparities between the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars."

Pretty neat huh? 

Talk to you all soon, I've got things to burn kitchen duty!!!  Take a look at all the wonderful things in your life today.  There's always tomorrow to do your worrying.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Sci

    1. Oh girl you know me pretty well huh? True though, now that we've been at this a little bit it's starting to just become our new lives. For Mars it was love at first sight and he hit it running once we got here. Me? Well as you so sweetly said "this IS actually your life from now on" you hit the nail on the head!
      I'm blessed to have you as a friend.
