Hanukkah or Chanukah is the Festival of Dedication that John spoke about in John 10:22. Hanukkah is all about miracles. The story of Hanukkah centers around the miracle of oil at the re-dedication of the Temple just a couple hundred years before the time of Jesus. This is a holiday Jesus would have celebrated with His family.

This has to be one of my favorite Biblical holidays. Everyone in my family has their own Hanukkiah. I usually buy small gifts for my girls, one for each night. But this last year I bought a large gift card for them on the last night instead of a bunch of small gifts. Now that they are older, they appreciate the big gift!
