Since the rules for determining the date of Thanksgiving in the U.S. were changed in 1941, the latest possible date for Thanksgiving is November 28. Currently, the earliest possible date for the first day of Hanukkah is November 28. However, the first day of Hanukkah never again falls on November 28 after 2146, and it never again falls on Thursday, November 28 after 2013. The only other time the first day of Hanukkah coincided with Thanksgiving Day was on Thursday, November 29, 1888!

The first day of Hanukkah will be the day after Thanksgiving in 2070.
