For the first time in history, Thanksgiving Day and the first day of Hanukkah fall on the same day. It won't happen again for 74,000 years. And Suncoast Jewish families are having a great time combing the two in what they're calling "Thanksgivingkah."

They are serving the special dishes that are traditional for both holidays, and combining decorations that are traditional for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah.
