A wonderful eight night Jewish holiday celebrating the Maccabees victory over the Greco-Syrian forces and the miracle of oil burning for eight days when their was only enough oil to last for one. Its not the Jewish Christmas and it is extremely fun.

Menorah's, dreidels and latkes are popular symbols of Hanukkah but its much deeper than that.
Most of the definitions of Hanukkah on Urban Dictionary are offensive and untrue :)
