Also known as the Festival of Lights, Chanukah starts at sundown today and lasts for eight days. It is a Jewish celebration of religious freedom based on historical events of more than two thousand years ago. It is traditional to exchange gifts or gelt (Yiddish for money) in the form of real coins or chocolate wrapped in gold foil, to play a game of put-and-take with a four-sided top called a dreidel, and to light candles each night. Traditional foods include donuts and potato pancakes.
