We discussed and learned about Hanukkah,
as compared/contrasted it to Kwanzaa and Christmas.
Hanukkah is another type of holiday that some people may celebrate. Hanukkah is celebrated for observed for eight nights and days. It is also known as the Festival of Lights and the Feast of Dedication.
The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of the nine-branched menorah. The typical menorah consists of eight branches with an additional visually distinct branch. The extra light, with which the others are lit, is called a shamash and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the other candles. Other Hanukkah festivities include playing dreidel and eating oil-based foods such as doughnuts and latkes.
