Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.HANUKKAH IS ABOUT THE MIRACLE of a little clay lamp - the kind of ancient object, usual enough, that has turned up by the score in archaeological digs in the old lands surrounding the Mediterranean. It happened once that a lamp of this character - a simple jar hung with a wick - contained only enough oil to last a single day. Fortunately, it burned for eight; and that is the miracle of Hanukkah.
