For first time in nearly 40 years, Hanukkah and Christmas Eve are on the same day

The Jewish festival of Hanukkah begins on the same night every year: the 25th of Kislev. However, since the traditional Jewish calendar is based on lunar months of either 29 or 30 days, that means that the holiday can fall anywhere from Nov. 27 to Dec. 26 in terms of the solar, secular Gregorian calendar used today in the West. This year, though, for the first time in nearly four decades, Hanukkah commences on Christmas Eve.

Life isn’t without its trials. It has a nasty habit of turning good and happy things into sad ones. In the famous words of Thomas Paine, “these are the times that try men’s souls.” Those times when it feels like all hope is lost, those are the times that make it difficult to get out of bed in the morning. Those are the ones that make us question everything we’ve ever known.
