Christmas vs Hanukkah

Anyone else who had no idea about this Jewish holiday as a child, jealous that their friends got Jewish Christmas for 8 days? My little mind hand no understanding of this holiday! Here’s more about the meanings behind the Christmas and Hanukkah holidays.

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus. The story that Hanukkah commemorates took place more than a century before, when the Jews revolted against the the Greek King Antiochus.

Christmas is the most significant Christian observance of the year, marking the birth of Jesus. (see Christmas memes)

Hanukkah was until modern times a fairly minor Jewish observance and is not mentioned at all in the Bible. The rabbis established it much later to commemorate events that took place in the second century B.C.E.

While Christmas falls every year on December 25 of the solar calendar, Hanukkah also falls on the 25th of the month, but according to the Lunar calendar. This makes it fall on a different date each year on the secular calendar.

Hanukkah is an eight day holiday that commemorates the miracle that one vial of oil, sufficient to light the ancient Temple light for one day, burned for eight full days.

Christmas lasts just one day. You don’t see people putting out their menorahs in September, like these early Christmas memes. Christmas people be crazy! (Also, I am a crazy Christmas person, so no judgement here!)

Some Christian denominations do celebrate Christmas as a 12-day festival known as Twelvetide.
