Judaism 101: Chanukkah __ "Chanukkah is probably one of the best known Jewish holidays, not because of any great religious significance, but because of its proximity to Christmas.

It is bitterly ironic that this holiday, which has its roots in a revolution against assimilation and the suppression of Jewish religion, has become the most assimilated, secular holiday on our calendar."  History, tradition, music and more. - illustrated - From jewfaq.org - http://www.jewfaq.org/holiday7.htm

When Jews came to rededicate the Temple—which had been defiled by the Syrians—they found only one small flask of oil with which to light the menorah. This flask contained only enough oil for one day, yet the lamp burned for eight days (by which time a fresh supply of oil was obtained)."  You will find history, traditional celebrations and much more. - illustrated - From historychannel.com - http://www.historychannel.com/exhibits/holidays/hanukkah/traditions.html
