Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the rededication of a holy temple in Jerusalem. It started at the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire.  Now in this generation it starts Tuesday, December 12, and ends on Wednesday, December 20.  So for traditions, they start by celebrating the Festival of Lights, families light candles on a special holder called a menorah.  Often, they play a dreidel game, then they eat gelt, then after they cook delicious foods and give Hanukkah gifts. The last thing they do on the last day of Hanukkah is to go with their families outside to observe the sunset, which ends their Hanukkah holiday.
