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 menorah and exchanging small gifts on each of the eight days.

After working with Team Flash to catch Roy Bivolo, Felicity coded facial recognition software for their base at S.T.A.R. Labs as a Hanukkah gift.[4]

When Oliver was throwing his campaign holiday party, Donna Smoak and Felicity included Hanukkah decorations to represent their Jewish heritage.[5]
