About the Holiday

Chanukah, also spelled Hanukkah, is a Jewish festival that lasts for 8 days and typically falls between late November to late December on the Gregorian calendar. Celebrating Hanukkah involves lighting a candle on a Menorah each night, eating fried food such as latkes (potato cakes), children play the Dreidel game, and the giving of gelt (chocolate coins) to children. Giving gelt has evolved into the giving of gifts on each night.
