Hanukkah

It is the Festival of Lights . It comes from an old tradition . People celebrate the victory of the jews against Greek soldiers in 165 before Christ. Thanks to a miracle, they found an oil candle which burned for eight nights.

Today, people light candles in a menorah ( a candleholder with eight candles) for eight nights.

They eat potato pancakes cooked in oil to remember the miracle.

In 2007, Hanukkah begins on the 4th of December at sunset.
