Happy Hanukkah 2019 :- Hanukkah is a miraculous Jewish festival of light which is celebrated to mark the victory of the Maccabees over the larger army of the Syrian’s. It also symbolizes the miracle that happened when just a small amount of oil allowed menorah(an ancient lamp) to be lit for eight days in a rededicated temple in Jerusalem.This is the reason why Jewish people celebrate this festival for eights days.The word Hanukkah means “dedication”. According to Hebrew Calendar,Hanukkah begins on the 25th day of Kislev i.e. either late November or December of the normal calendar. This year it will be celebrated from the evening of 22nd December 2019 to the evening of 30th December 2019.
How To Celebrate Happy Hanukkah
A special type of candle holder Hanukiah(or Hanukkah menorah),which is an important Hanukkah symbol is lit during this festival. A Hanukiah has 9 candles and out of these 9 candles, 1 candle is separated by either being higher than the other 8 candles or by being lower than them.This generally high candle is known as Shamash. On the very first night of the festival,only one candle is lit which is on the right most side.Then on the second night, the second candle is added. The candles are lit from right to left.
These candles are not lit directly instead they all are lit by Shamash. On the final night of the festival all the eights candles are lit. First the Shamash is lit and then all the candles are lit by it,while the candles are lit,blessings are said over them.
