The Holidays are upon us, and while most might be celebrating Christmas, there are quite a few that also celebrate Hanukkah. Hanukkah originated over 2,000 years ago around the same time Christmas began being celebrated. Unlike Christmas, however, it lasts eight days, and children would receive a gift each day. Hanukkah celebrates the Maccabee’s victory over the Syrian army. It also marks a miracle, where a day’s worth of oil allowed the menorah to light up for eight days in the rededicated Temple in Jerusalem. Followers of the Jewish religion also have many traditions celebrated during Hanukkah.
