Hanukkah

Hanukkah

Hanukkah, known as the Festival of Lights, celebrates the victory of the Maccabees over King Antiochus of Syria, who wanted them to reject their religion and worship his gods. After the victory, the Maccabees wanted to rededicate the Jerusalem Temple, but could only find a tiny jug of oil, enough for a single day. They lit the lamp, and the tiny amount of oil stayed lit for eight days.

Kwanza

Kwanza

The newest of the December celebrations, Kwanzaa was inspired by the civil rights struggles of the 1960s and based on ancient African celebrations. It was developed by Dr. Maulana Karenga, an African-American scholar and activist, in 1966. Now more than 20 million people celebrate all over the world. The celebration focuses on seven principles, known by the Swahili phrase "Nguzo Saba."
