PHOENIX -- U.S. Jews are dealing with a rare quirk of the calendar on Thursday that overlaps Thanksgiving with the start of Hanukkah. The last time it happened was 1888 and the next is 79,043 years from now - by one estimate widely shared in Jewish circles.

"The fact that we can celebrate both holidays at the same time, it's kind of awesome," Chompie's owner Neal Borenstein said while showing "Good Morning Arizona" viewers some great dishes designed just for "Thanksgivukkah."
