OK, enough with the intro la-la, let's get started with this weeks holiday celebrations in downtown Delray Beach...

Menorah Lighting
Sundown November 27, 2013

Everyone is invited to join in the Lighting of the Menorah on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 at 5:15 pm.

Menorah Lighting at the 100-Foot Christmas Tree

This special ceremony of the Menorah Lighting is to honor the beginning of Hanukkah with the lighting of the first candle.

The event is held outdoors at the Delray Beach Center for Arts at Old School Square at the famous 100-Foot Christmas Tree.


For the first time since 1888, it is being reported that Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same date this year -- thus it has been affectionately (temporarily) renamed as Thanksgivukkah.

According to LiveScience, this will not happen again for another 70-some thousand years'!!!

I've heard 70,000, 76,000 and 79,000 years', so I'm throwing out 70-some thousand and I'll leave it up to the scientists to debate. Apparently, no one is truly certain because calendars aren't projected that far into the future.
