  • (1888PressRelease) November 20, 2013 - Oceanside, NY - Families all over the country look forward to the holiday season all year round. This year, however, things are going to be a little different. Oddly, both Hannukah and Thanksgiving will be celebrated on the same day this year.

    The celebration of both Hannukah and Thanksgiving on the same day is definitely an anomaly. This is the first time this has happened in over 100 years. Each holiday celebrates an event that occurred in totally different time periods. Thanksgiving commemorates the peace made between the Pilgrims and Native Americans in colonial America. Hannukah is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the defeat of King Antiochus by the Maccabees in the time of the holy Temple in Jerusalem.

    Despite their obvious differences both Thanksgiving and Hannukah are holidays that bring together families and friends. Each holiday is associated with its own traditional meals and activities that make them even more memorable.

    "Here at Oceanside we have embraced this oddity by planning out an amazing day for our residents. They will take part in activities that pertain to both holidays. Our residents are excited for this special holiday event that they will get to enjoy with their families and friends," says Kellie O'Connor, admissions director at Oceanside Care Center.

    Oceanside Care Center has prepared well for this a-typical holiday event, preparing events and meals that include aspects of both holidays. Families and friends of residents are urged to come down to celebrate with their loved ones, making this already memorable day even more memorable.
