Feast of Chanukah or Hannakah

When is Chanukah? November 28, 2021; December 18, 2022; December 7, 2023; December 26, 2024; December 14, 2025; December 4, 2026; December 24, 2027

Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, (also called Chanukah and Hanukah) 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 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.


Today's Chuckle: "One Hanukkah, a Jewish husband said to his wife, “I think there’s something wrong with these latkes, dear. They taste awful.” His wife replied, “That shows you what you know. The recipe book says they’re delicious.”
