Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, usually falls between late November and late December. Jewish family traditions include exchanging gifts, lighting the menorah, playing the dreidel game, and singing festive songs. One candle is lit on each night of the festival, on a special candelabrum called a menorah, to mark the celebration of the Festival of Lights. The family will chant blessings before lighting the candles. A family feast serves traditional recipes using oil as the key ingredient - latkes and jelly doughnuts are favorites. Send the family a Hanukkah centerpiece to place on their dining table, the shimmering silver and gold accents will make the Festival of Lights even brighter.
