Hanukkah is a Jewish festival of lights which takes
place at the beginning of December and lasts for 8 days. It celebrates
the recapture and rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem by Judas
Maccabaeus in 164 BC. Legend has it that once the Temple had been
reclaimed a lamp was lit for its rededication. The lamp miraculously
burned for 8 days despite only having enough sacramental oil for one. To
commemorate this a lamp is lit during every night of Hanukkah and placed
in an eight-branched candlestick called a menorah.
