Laurel Bay Health and Rehabilitation Center Celebrates as Two Crucial Holidays Unite This Season

Keansburg, NJ Based Nursing Home Laurel Bay Health and Rehabilitation Center Prepares Special Program as the Holiday Season Approaches.

Keansburg, NJ, November 21, 2013 --( Families across the nation are coming together for a unique celebration this year. The Hanukkah and Thanksgiving holidays are coming together again for the first time in 125 years. Coming to be known on the Internet as Thanksgivukkah, this is a unique opportunity to make memories by celebrating with food and family in honor of this double holiday. It is truly something that will only come once in a lifetime and will be remembered for years to come.

Hannukah, also known in Judaism as the Festival of Lights, is a holiday that goes back thousands of years into history. Lasting for eight days, it celebrates the miracle of one day’s worth of oil lasting for a full eight days after the triumph of the Maccabees over King Antiochus. Thanksgiving, on the other hand, celebrates the uniting of the Native Americans and the Pilgrims in colonial times. This national holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November every year. Despite their differences, both holidays have an underlying effect of bringing families and friends together.

“Holidays are the most important time of the year for gathering families together. With the celebration of two different major holidays on the same day, now more than ever, we encourage the family and friends of our residents to join us in the festivities. We see a fantastic opportunity to effectively join these two holidays together with food, music, and friends, and can't wait to see the turn-out,” said Jennifer Horath, Administrator at Laurel Bay Health and Rehabilitation Center.

Laurel Bay Health and Rehabilitation Center is hosting programs and events that reflect the festive nature of the day. Traditional games will be played, accompanied by traditional storytelling and followed by a meal made up of innovative combinations of signature dishes from both holidays. Family, friends, and loved ones are encouraged to join in on the festivities and to contribute to the spirit of community.
