There will be a fair amount of interest this year since Chanukah/Hanukkah First Night, falls on Christmas Eve.

That is special. Only the 4th time it has fallen on Christmas Even since 1900.

Chanukah/Hanukkah First Night can also fall on Christmas Day, as it did in 2005 and will again in 2024.

But, given the 8-day span of Chanukah/Hanukkah this ‘Chrismukkah’ conjunction can happen any time Chanukah/Hanukkah falls December 18th and Christmas day.

This has happened 33 times since 1900 to 2016: 1902, 1905, 1908, 1910, 1913, 1916, 1921, 1924, 1927, 1932, 1935, 1940, 1943, 1946, 1951, 1954, 1959, 1962, 1965, 1970, 1973, 1978, 1981, 1984, 1989, 1992, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2011 & 2016.

It will happen 20 times between next year and 2099: 2019, 2022, 2024, 2027, 2030, 2035, 2038, 2046, 2049, 2054, 2057, 2065, 2068, 2073, 2076, 2084, 2087, 2092, 2095 & 2098.

You don’t have to wait long. Next one is in but 3 years! 2019.

So you can see why it, viz. Chanukah/Hanukkah First Night, can and will fall on Christmas Eve (as it will in 2016), Christmas Day (as it will on 2024) or on Boxing Day (as it will on 2032).

The first night of Chanukah/Hanukkah falling on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day does NOT happen that often.

That it happens on Christmas Eve this year is rather special. Only the 4th time since 1900!

Chanukah/Hanukkah did fall on Christmas Day 11 years ago.

It will again in 2024. So a 19 year gap.

Also, only four times, so far, since 1900.
