Hanukkah, or Chanukah, is a holiday usually celebrated in early to mid-December by practitioners of Judasim.

Overview

Hanukkah is a holiday celebrated over eight days, usually in early to mid December. There are no set dates for the celebration of Hanukkah; the dates change every year depending on the Hebrew calendar.

Hanukkah is usually celebrated by lighting a hanukkiah and exchanging small gifts on each of the eight days.
