Putnam Ridge Celebrates as Thanksgiving and Hanukah Share the Same Day This Year

Brewster, NY Based Nursing Home Putnam Ridge Hosts Festivities as Hannukah and Thanksgiving Share the Stage This Year.

Brewster, NY, November 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The holidays are everyone’s favorite time of year. Good food and great company characterize the many holidays to be celebrated this fall. Oddly, this year two widely celebrated holidays are to be celebrated on the same day. These two holidays are Thanksgiving and Hannukah.

Both holidays are very different in terms of what they celebrate. However they each have the common aspect of bringing friends and families together. During Thanksgiving, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, families join for a meal that commemorates the uniting of the Pilgrims and Native Americans in the 1600s. Hannukah celebrates the miracle of the oil that lasted eight days in the holy temple in Jerusalem thousands of years ago. To celebrate this holiday families and friends come together to light a Menorah and eat traditional foods.

Putnam Ridge has prepared well for this a-typical holiday event. They have prepared events and meals that include aspects of both holidays. Families and friends of residents are urged to come down to celebrate with their loved ones, making this already memorable day even more memorable.

“Our staff has worked very hard to make this Thanksgiving and Hanukah a memorable day for all. The holidays are our residents’ favorite time of year and they are especially excited to have their friends and families join them in the festivities,” says Rosemarie Pottinger, Administrator at Putnam Ridge.
