Are you serious? You don't know what Chanukkah is? Maybe you know it best as Hanukkah? It's 8 days of presents, celebrated by Jewish families all over the world. It's to celebrate Judah Maccabee, and a candle being lit for 8 days on just one candle's worth of oil. Most people don't even really know the history of it anymore. It's simply known as the Jewish holiday... usually falls right before Xmas, but sometimes overlaps.
