Are you hosting Hanukkah this year? We've got everything you need to host a fabulous Hanukkah celebration!
Hanukkah kicks off by the lighting of the menorah. This celebration is in tribute of the Jewish victory over the Syrian-Greeks. After the victory, in order to purify their Holy Temple, the Jewish troops mandated ritual oil to be burned for eight days and nights. Unaware that they only had enough oil for one day, they moved forward. To their surprise, the oil burned and glowed bright for eight days and nights, creating what we now know today to be the miracle of Hanukkah.
Common traditions include the lighting of the menorah (an additional candle each evening), the spinning of the dreidel and, of course, eating scrumptious, rich, fried foods. Why fried? Well, after all, it IS the celebration of the miracle of oil.
