Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is celebrated for eight days and nights. It typically falls sometime between late November and late December, depending on the year, as the Hebrew calendar follows a lunar cycle.

Here's a breakdown:

  • Duration: 8 days and nights
  • Dates: Between late November and late December (Gregorian calendar)
  • Hebrew calendar dates: 25th of Kislev to the 2nd of Tevet

Since Jewish days begin at sunset and end the following sunset, the celebration technically stretches over nine calendar days according to the Gregorian calendar. However, it is still referred to as an eight-day festival.
