  2. 4. Unlike most spelling words you remember from school, Hanukkah can be correctly spelled many different ways, including Chanukah, Chanukkah, and Hanukah. Hanukkah is probably the Jewish holiday with which non-Jews are most familiar, due to its proximity to Christmas.   Despite years of teachers including Hanukkah in their "Christmas Around the World” lessons, Hanukkah is not the "Jewish Christmas" - it historically predates Christmas and had a very different origin.   Hanukkah starts on the 25th of the month of Kislev.  But because the Hebrew calendar is lunar rather than solar, it can fall anywhere from November to early January on the standard calendar.     Gift-giving is not traditionally associated with Hanukkah. At most a small amount of money or a sweet would be given to children.  As Hanukkah became more popular in the U.S. and Canada, the idea of 8 nights of gifts grew in acceptance. Hanukkah Facts

  4. 6. Place the menorah in a central spot in your home. Recite the following: "Blessed are you, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with his commandments and commanded us to kindle the lights of Hanukkah.” Light the shamash, or service candle, and then use it to light the candle on the far right of the menorah. "Blessed are you, Lord our God, King of the universe, who performed miracles for our ancestors, at this season, in days past." Replace the shamash. Let them burn. Add the following blessing only on the first night of Hanukkah: "Blessed are you, Lord our God, King of the universe, who gave us life and kept us and delivered us to this time.” Light two candles on the second night, keeping in mind that you always light from left to right using the shamash. Continue with three candles on the third night in the same fashion, and continue doing this each night until, on the eighth night, all eight candles are burning brightly (nine, including the shamash). On each night, repeat the first two blessings quoted above. The Menorah
