For the first time since 1888, Thanksgiving and the Jewish tradition of Hanukkah will share the same date, November 25, 2013. This will not happen again for another 79,000 years. Thanksgiving, first named a United States holiday in 1863, and Hanukkah, dating back to 165 BC Jerusalem, are two unique celebrations representing generations of history, culture and pride. To commemorate this once in a lifetime moment, Lenox, America’s foremost tabletop and giftware brand along with their entertaining expert and celebrity event planner Andrea Correale have joined forces. Together, they have created a festive table that celebrates both events simultaneously. Since 1889, Lenox has brought families and friends together for countless occasions.
