Hanukkah and Thanksgiving overlap this year...and then almost never again

This year, the first day of Hanukkah coincides with Thanksgiving Day. Amazingly, this is the first time it's happened since President Lincoln established Thanksgiving in 1863 and it is also the last time it'll happen until the year 79,811. I'll say that again: after this year, Hanukkah and Thanksgiving Day won't overlap for another 77,798 years.
