It's a once in more than 70,000-year event: The first day of Hanukkah this year coincides with Thanksgiving.

As a result, Jews everywhere are gearing up for "Thanksgivukkah," a mashup of Thanksgiving and the Jewish festival of lights. This lineup of the first day ofHanukkah with Thanksgiving is incredibly rare.

"That's not going to happen again for thousands and thousands of years. No one knows exactly how long, because the calendars aren't going up that high," said Jason Miller, a rabbi in Michigan who blogs at rabbijason.com. "It's something like 70,000 years," assuming of course that America, the Jews and the human race are still around at that time. [Thanksgiving: 10 Tips for Sticking to Healthy Portions]
