Hanukkah (Jewish)

December 10 - December 18

Hanukkah, also known as Hanukah, Chanukah, 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 commemorates the victory of a small group of Jewish rebels, the Maccabees, over the ruling power, the Greco-Syrians, who wanted to destroy Jewish culture. Traditions include a game involving spinning dreidels (tops), eating potato latkes (pancakes), and giving gifts.
