      Known also as the Festival of Dedication, as well as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is a major Jewish holiday commemorating the re-dedication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem by the Maccabees. Hanukkah (also Romanized as Chanukah) is celebrated annually for 8 days and nights, usually between late November and late December.   For most of Jewish history, Hanukkah was considered a minor festival. The Hanukkah story does not appear in the Tanakh, the Hebrew Bible, which is the basis of the Christian Old Testament.

This festival is not one of the seven festivals found in Leviticus chap but in its original concept, it is free from pagan trappings.
