Hanukkah Gift Giving: Eight Gifts to Delight
Known as "The Festival of Lights," Hanukkah commemorates the ancient victory of the Maccabees over their oppressors. While they had just enough oil to last a single day, the Temple menorah stayed lit for eight nights. Hanukkah celebrations honor that miracle with eight nights of lighting the menorah; gathering with friends and family to share special meals; playing games; singing songs; and exchanging gifts. Hanukkah is a time of joy, wonder, and gratitude.
