All around the world, Jewish adults and children celebrate the festival of lights called Hanukkah.
The date of Hanukkah changes every year, because it depends on the calendar, but it will always fall in November or December. It lasts for eight days and might also be called Chanukah.
In 2020 it happens from nightfall on 10 December until nightfall on 18 December.
The eight-day Jewish celebration known as Hanukkah or Chanukah commemorates the rededication during the second century B.C.
Often called the Festival of Lights, the holiday is celebrated with the lighting of the menorah, eating traditional foods like sufganiyot (similar to jelly donuts) and latkes (fried potato pancakes) and exchanging gifts.
Each night, one additional candle is lit by the Shamash until all eight candles are lit together on the final night of the festival.
Hanukkah Sameach. (Happy Hanukkah)
