The festival of Lights.
The festivity of Hanukkah, also known as Festival of Lights or Festival of Rededication, starts on the 25th day of the month of Kislev, in December. It commemorates the purification and rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem with the victory of the Maccabees at 165 BC. The lights of hanukÓ celebrate a victory and commemorate a miracle, that of one small vessel of oil that could illuminate the candelabra of the Temple for eight days, the necessary ones so that the priests could prepare new rations of pure oil.
