  • (1888PressRelease) November 20, 2013 - Long Beach, NY - One of the most notable aspects of this time of year is the vast amount of holidays. This year, two of these holidays uncommonly overlap. For the first time since 1888, Thanksgiving and the first night of Hannukah fall out on the same day.

    Hannukah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is a holiday that goes back thousands of years. Lasting 8 days, it celebrates the miracle of one jug of oil lasting for 8 days after the triumphant victory of the Maccabees over King Antiochus. On the other hand, Thanksgiving celebrates the uniting of the Native Americans and the Pilgrims in colonial times. This national holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November every year. Despite their differences, both holidays have an underlying effect of bring families and friends together.

    "We are very excited about both Hannukah and Thanksgiving this year. The overlap of the two holidays gives us a chance to create memorable festivities for the residents that encompass both holidays. We encourage families and friends of our residents to come in and share this special day with their loved ones," remarked Martin Zwick, Administrator at Beach Terrace Care Center.
