ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The overlapping of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah is rare. The last time it happened on the first day of Hanukkah was in 1888.
While it is rare, that won't stop everyone from celebrating. Hanukkah lasts for eight days.
Chana'la Rubenfeld, Co-Director of Chabad of Chesterfield, came by the studio with a look at the holiday and a recipe that combines the two.
Rubenfeld prepared Hanukkah/Thanksgiving donuts, and discussed a program she is a part of.
Rebunfeld talked about Show Me Chanukah with Chabad, a program Chabad centers in St. Louis are hosting. This program is designed to maximize awareness of Hanukkah in the community.
Part of Show Me Chanukah with Chabad includes three Menorah displays throughout the region.
There will be a public celebration at each on different nights during Hanukkah.
