This year, Hanukkah (aka Chanukah or Hanukah) begins the night of December 2nd and ends December 10th. It’s an 8 day celebration that celebrates the story of oil unexpectedly lasting 8 days a very long time ago. It’s sometimes referred to as the Festival of Lights – 8 candles (plus the addition of a 9th candle which lights the other ones) are lit in a menorah (a candelabrum) and lots of oil-based foods are enjoyed. These are my family favorites! And yes, we’re eating jelly doughnuts for dinner one night. 🙂
