CELEBRATED IN MANY PLACES– Hanukkah is a holiday with family, food and presents.

Jews eat latkes and jelly donuts (and other foods cooked in oil) to celebrate how the Jews only had a small amount of oil to light a candle for one day. But a miracle happened: The candle lasted for eight days, enough time to get more oil.

“On Hanukkah you light the candles on the menorah. There are nine candles including the shamash,”shard NN.

Hanukkah is a time of year where Jews come together to celebrate a victory from over 2,000 years ago.

That’s why we celebrate Hanukkah.
