Whether you spell it Chanukah or Hanukkah, it’s clear you are talking about The Festival of Lights, a fun and festive eight day celebration. More than 21 centuries ago, there was a miracle when the Jews regained control of Jerusalem and rededicated the temple. According to history, a candle was lit to restore beauty to the temple using a small amount of olive oil and a miracle occurred as the flame burned for an amazing eight days and nights.
Chanukah traditions include eating foods fried in oil such as potato pancakes and sufganiot (donuts), spinning a dreidle (a spinning top with Hebrew letters on each side), and customary small gifts for each child every night of the holiday, typically consisting of gelt, the Yiddish word for money. All year children look forward to lighting the menorah, singing songs like “oh Chanukah, o Chanukah”, games, fun and treats.
