The 8 days and nights of Hanukkah begin this year on the evening of December 8. The traditions of Hanukkah are celebrated throughout the world, as the Jewish faith commemorates an ancient victory in war, and were miraculously able to keep the temple Eternal Light lit for 8 days although they had only enough oil for 1 day.
Daily prayers, menorahs, potato latkes and donuts (cooked in oil to remember the miracle of the Eternal Light), small gifts, and golden coins (often filled with chocolate) symbolize the festivities; and blue and white candles, dreidels (4-sided tops), table settings and decorations add to the festivities.
Special Hanukkah songs are sung throughout the 8 days, many to help teach young children about this special celebration.
