HAPPY THANKSGIVUKKAH!
Reaganite Republican ^ | 28 November 2013 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 11/27/2013 9:31:56 PM PST by Reaganite Republican

Because Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same day for 2013
-as they last did in 1888-  this year's calendar has produced a 
rare concurrence that won't be repeated for another 79,043 years...

Yeah, have a great day, Freepers. Be thankful that Obastard’s approval is in freefall.

The way cultures arrange their calendars is pretty interesting.

The Byzantines numbered their years from 5508 BC, what they thought was the date of the creation of the world. So for example our 1000 AD would be their year 6508.

And in 6508, they were the greatest power in Europe. But they let it slip away, and in 1071 suffered a crushing defeat to the Turks at Manzikert, and lost most of Anatolia.

“Be thankful that Obastard’s approval is in freefall.”

It’s Istanbul, not Constantinople. Why did Constantinople get the works? It’s nobody’s business but the Turks!
