Definition funny of Hanukkah:

urbanA very misunderstood holiday...Hanukkah takes place on the 25th of Kislev, the 3rd month on the Jewish calendar. Kislev used to be 100% synonymous with December, but, whereas the modern calendar is solar, the Jewish calendar, like the Old Roman calendar, is lunar. This is why Hanukkah is on different dates in December throughout the years. In 168 BCE, on the 25th of Kislev, Antiochus Epiphanes, King of Syria and overlord of Israel, desecrated the Jewish Temple by setting up a statue of Zeus inside, and sacrificing a swine to Zeus. Many Jews were forced to worship the Greek deities, or else be killed. MattithYah Maccabee, and his son Yahudah led a rebellion, and within 3 years regained control of Jerusalem. On the 25th of Kislev, 165 BCE, the Maccabees purified the Temple, and re-dedicated it to the service of Yahweh.

urbanThe Purification/Dedication ritual took eight days. There was only enough oil to light the Menorah for 1 day, but, miraculously, it lasted for 8 days. In rememberance of this, the household menorah is lit for eight days, and fried foods, especially pastries, are eaten. But, Hanukkah is really about religious freedom. The books of Maccabees are the story of Hanukkah. You can find these in the CATHOLIC versions of the Christian Bible. For some reason, these are not included in Protestant versions.

urban8 nights of latkes, fried greasy potato pancakes, for dinner, and having to "try" to act excited. It is hard to pretend but I dont want to make my Mom and Dad fell bad. OK, the candles are fun but my mom wont let me play with the matches and is worried the house will burn down if I lite the candles or I might burn my fingers, but really, can't you spare even one magic elf bring us toys too. I am a good boy. Honest.

urbanDear Santa, do you have any magic Jewish elves to spare around Hanukkah? See my sister says you know Yenta Claus? Is there really such a person or not? Is there really a Hanukkah Harry? Who is this Santa Cohen and are any of them magic elves? Are they really jewish too? Is Yenta Claus real? If that is true ask her not to forget me. Just say I am good and to give me an ipod. I love you, Thank you Jacob

urbanA wonderful eight night Jewish holiday celebrating the Maccabees victory over the Greco-Syrian forces and the miracle of oil burning for eight days when their was only enough oil to last for one. Its not the Jewish Christmas and it is extremely fun. Menorah's, dreidels and latkes are popular symbols of Hanukkah but its much deeper than that.

urbanMost of the definitions of Hanukkah on Urban Dictionary are offensive and untrue :)

urbanAn low-key but awesome Jewish holiday. Its not all about material objects and commercialism like Christmas.
