ReadSarah shares a poem that elucidates what Hanukkah means to her.
HanukkahBy Sarah, age 12
Every once a year, on 8 very special nights.
The nights the Jewish people love.
On those nights, the Menorah we shall light.
This one holiday, it's so important to all Jews.
When Hanukkah comes around, oh its such splendid news!
It started off a while back, many centuries ago.
When a candle remained litten, for eight days in a row.
Now thousands of years later, we still celebrate ...
HANUKKAH! We all shout, the perfect holiday!
To celebrate Hanukkah we have loads of traditions.
To make this holiday so special and filled with love and wishes.
We bake jelly donuts and spend time with family!
The children get loads of presents they each unwrap happily!
We watch movies and tell stories.
We have fun with everyone!
These are just some of the things that make Hannukah loads of fun. There is a toy with Hebrew symbols, and it can really spin.
This toy is called a dreidel; let's see who will win!
There is also special food
Stuffed with mashed potatoes filling.
It’s like a potato pancake!
It makes Hanukkah most thrilling.
It’s called Potato Latkes! It’s meant for those special nights.
It’s so tasty and delicious if you whip them up just right.
Hanukkah really is a lovely holiday!
These traditions make it so special.

What’s your favorite thing about Hanukkah? Let us know in the comments!
Hanukkah is one of my favorite Jewish holidays because it commemorates a miracle long ago. These days, we light a menorah and share traditions to remember the oil lasting for eight nights. Some include: getting to spend time with family, spinning dreidels, and eating fried foods. Chag Hanukkah Sameach! (Happy Hanukkah!)
My favourite part of Hanukkah is when we eat the gelt and open up the presents, eat delicious food, play dreidel, light the menorah and watch how the lights on the menorah flicker and of course spending time with my family. I love almost everything about Hanukkah. It's the best holiday :)
My favorite part of Chanukah is watching the candles flicker, and watching, on the eighth night, six or seven menorahs shine beautifully through the windows of our home. Also, LATKES. You know what they say, “Eating latkes makes you a well-rounded person.” That is an actual Yiddish saying.
My fave thing about Chanukah is the latkes and of course, GELT!!!!
My favorite part of Hanukkah is being with my friends and family
I love getting presents!!!!!!
Me too.... I love getting gifts!
I love getting together with family and all the delicious food.

My bother was born the 25th of Kislev, the 1st day of Hanukkah, I enjoy celebrating his birthday and Hanukkah at the same time. Our schools does a really nice party and we get to make our own Hanukkiah during Hebrew class :)
my brother was also born around chanuka
I love doing the dreidel game and the presents, but I love being able to celebrate with a wonderful family. P.S: John0106 is my twin brother. He's the best twin brother I could ever ask for!

The Star of David is not part of Chanukah or is it?
I guess so, because the Maccabees (the Jewish people) won the battle.
my fav was the Hanukkah video and the star of David video.
I really loved Sarah's poem and me and my brother liked Rohan's video too!
