Hanukkah History
Share this Hanukkah story at your party:  The history of Hanukkah (aka Chanukah) goes back, way back, to when it all started in the year 165 BCE. Hanukkah (Chanukah), the "dedication" and "The Festival of Lights", is a Jewish festival which begins on the Hebrew date of the 25th of Kislev and lasts eight days, through the 2nd of Tevet. Hanukkah commemorates the victory of the Maccabees (led by Judah) over the Hellenistic Syrians in a revolt that took place around 165 BCE. The most important Hanukkah ritual is the candle lighting. A candle is lit in a special candleholder called a Menorah. Each night, one more candle is added. The middle candle, called the "Shamash", is used to light each of the other candles and it is lit every night. On the first night of Hanukkah, two candles are lit (the Shamash and the candle for the first night) and on the last night, there are nine lit candles. As you know the story of Chanukah is an interesting tradition... Don't forget that planning your affair is only limited by your imagination. Create memories and a special celebration with fun games and activities. Great planning is the beginning of a great time! More about the History of Hanukkah. When deciding about your centerpieces for your Hanukkah celebration this year, why not think about using different menorahs? You can ask each of your guests to bring their favorite one and also share a story abut how they received it. Party Games
