Celebrating a Happy Hanukkah

When is Hanukkah?

Hanukkah, which is also known as the Festival of Light, is marked by a celebration that lasts for eight nights in a row. The dates when Hanukkah is observed change because they follow the Hebrew calendar which translates to different dates each year. Hanukkah 2022 begins just before it gets dark on the evening of Sunday, December 18, 2022. The Festival of Lights lasts each day and night and culminates on the evening of Monday, December 26, 2022.

Hanukkah 2023 will begin on the evening of Thursday, December 7, 2023. The celebration will last throughout the week and end on the evening of Friday, December 15, 2023.

How to Celebrate

Hanukkah is a time for celebration. It is an important holiday within the Jewish faith and is often marked by special dinners on each of the eight nights. There are many ways to celebrate a happy Hanukkah this year.

  • Host a dinner – Show off your cooking skills by whipping up a batch of Challah bread or some potato latkes and homemade applesauce. Even if you're not up for the challenge of cooking a full meal, host a potluck and invite your friends and family to share the spirit of the season.
  • Get involved with the community– Many synagogues host charitable events during the holiday season. From toy drives to fundraisers, it's especially important to give back during this time of year. Remember how fortunate you are and make sure to help others by donating to charities or volunteering this Hanukkah.
  • Suggest a neighborhood event – Get everyone involved this Hanukkah. Suggest a progressive dinner where you eat appetizers at one house, main dishes at another, and dessert at a third. This is a fun way to celebrate without putting too much responsibility on one person.
  • Spend time with loved ones – Sometimes, the holiday season gets busy, and you need a more relaxed way to celebrate. Having a small celebration with your loved ones can be a simple way to relax and genuinely enjoy your Hanukkah. Light your menorah and watch some good Hanukkah movies for a fun celebration you’ll cherish.


Sending Hanukkah ecards
Hanukkah ecards are a great way to celebrate with your friends, family, and loved ones. There are ecard options for absolutely everyone in your life! Here are a few of the people in your circle that you should put on your Hanukkah cards list:

  • Your parents– Remind your parents of just how much you enjoyed Hanukkah as a child. They worked hard to make your childhood celebrations special, and they deserve thanks and recognition. Sending them a Happy Hanukkah ecard will remind them of the joy they shared with you as a child.

  • Your grandparents– Grandparents both near and far deserve a Hanukkah ecard to help them start the holiday season. Send them a Hanukkah ecard and let them know how much you appreciate the faith you both share.

  • Your children or grandchildren– It’s important to remind your children and grandchildren about this important traditional season. Hanukkah is a very significant time in the Jewish faith, and an excellent time for your family to get together. Remind the kids in your life what a wonderful holiday Hanukkah is by sending them an animated, musical ecard.

  • Your friends– Hanukkah is a time for friends and family to get together and celebrate. Invite your friends to Hanukkah dinner by sending an ecard as an invitation. It’s a simple way to start out the season and will let them know you’re excited to celebrate with them this year.

  • Your rabbi – Your rabbi is at the heart of your religious community. You probably don’t always get the opportunity to send them a thank you for being such an impactful and compassionate force in your community. Send a Hanukkah card with a note about just how much you appreciate their commitment to your faith.

  • Members of your synagogue– If you attend synagogue, you likely have formed strong ties to other members in the community. Make sure to spread some holiday cheer by sending them a Hanukkah ecard.

Sharing Hanukkah wishes
There are many Hanukkah greeting phrases you can use when you send ecards. Here are a few Hanukkah greetings you can use for inspiration:

  • Wishing you a joyful Hanukkah!
  • Have a fantastic Hanukkah season!
  • Warm wishes to you and your family this Hanukkah season.
  • Happy Hanukkah!
  • Hoping you have a Hanukkah full of joy and light.

One question that’s often asked when people get ready to send their Hanukkah greetings is whether it is spelled Hanukkah or Chanukah. Actually, both spellings are correct. Since Hanukkah is translated from a Hebrew word, there really isn’t one official spelling. What’s important is that your message comes from the heart. Caring enough to send an ecard shows that you are thinking about them this holiday season, a gesture those in your life will certainly appreciate!
