This year, American Jews will celebrate something that has never happened before . . . and will never happen again. The first day of Hanukkah 2013 starts at sunset on Wednesday November 27th the night before Thanksgiving, Thursday November 28th.
Historically, Thanksgiving is the 4th Thursday in November, meaning the latest it can be is November 28th. As it turns out, November 28th is the earliest Hanukkah can be.
According to this source, The Jewish calendar repeats on a 19-year cycle, and Thanksgiving repeats on a 7-year cycle, which you'd expect these two holidays to coincide every 133 years (19x7). So, the last time this would have happened would have been in 1861. However, Thanksgiving wasn't established until 1863. Furthermore, moving forward, the Jewish calendar is slowly getting out of sync with the solar calendar (there's a long technical explanation for this which I'll spare you), so this colliding of holiday's will never happen again!

Here is a true Fairytale from our customer, Rosa, in Kentucky:
Once Upon a Time...
I ordered three dozen brownies last week, all going in a different direction. One dozen for myself, one dozen for our daughter Michelle and one dozen for our adopted daughter Carly. Our post office had been closed for one hour last Saturday when I realized my brownies were inside the post office. I squatted down, looked inside my post office box, heard a voice in the back and bribed the postman with the promise of a brownie if he would let me have my package, which he did. Today, Carly send me a video of our granddaughter Callan (14 months old) crying for one more bite of a Fairytale Brownie! She gave her a bite, threw the wrapper in the trash and the baby stood by the trash can crying.
Then I emailed Rosa, "May I share this story of spreading joy to your family through brownie deliveries, brownie bribes, little ones wanting more?" and "How did you first hear about us?"
Eileen, Yes you may share...Read More »
