Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, (also called Chanuka and Hannakuh) celebrates victory from Greek religious persecution. The Jewish victory was led by the Macabees in the year 167 B.C. Upon returning to the temple to rededicate it and relight the Menorah, the Macabees found only one small flask of oil, enough to light the Menorah for just one day. However, the flask of oil lasted lasted eight days, Hence the celebration lasts eight days. This is also why it is called the Festival of Lights.
Chanukah is a happy and joyous festivity. There is no fasting no eulogies,
and no sacrifice. Small gifts are given to family and friends each of the
eight days of Chanukah.
