Hanukkah (Jewish)

December 7 - December 15

Hanukkah, also known as HanukahChanukah, and Chanukkah can be spelled many different ways in English. It is an eight-day celebration known as the Festival of Lights marked by the lighting of candles using a special candle holder called a menorah or chanukiah. This holiday is where Jews celebrate their victory over a tyrant Greco-Syrian king and the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem. As the story goes, a small quantity of oil to light the Temple’s menorah miraculously lasted eight days. Traditions include a game involving spinning dreidels (tops), eating potato latkes (pancakes) and other oily foods, and gift giving.
