This Hanukkah Activities Theme page is to help celebrate Hanukkah. Hanukkah is a Jewish celebration. When they restored the Temple of Jerusalem, they celebrated by lighting an oil lamp. This lamp was to burn all the time.
They could only find enough oil to to keep it burning for one night. But a miracle occurred, and the oil lamp stayed lit for eight days, which was the amount of time it would take to make new oil for the lamp.
This is the miracle of the oil. Since that time, Jews would remember that day with an eight day Festival of Lights. They celebrate the miracle of the oil by lighting one candle in a Menorah (candle holder or candle stick) each evening during the eight day festivity.
