Happy Hanukkah!

It's Hanukkah! So light up your Menorah and celebrate the Festival of Lights. Share the story of the miracles, play with a dreidel and share a feast with friends and family.

Hanukkah (Hebrew: חנוכה‎, also spelled Chanukah or Hanukah), also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday beginning on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may fall anytime from late November to late December. It celebrates the rededication of the Second Temple at the time of the Maccabee rebellion.

This year it begins at sundown December 4 and runs through sundown December 12.
