Hanukkah is an eight day commemoration of the Jewish victory over the Greeks in which a only a one day cruse of olive oil was not contaminated by the Greeks. When lit the oil lasted eight days until more oil could be purified through a ritual. During this holiday a menorah is lit each day an additional candle is lit everyday until all eight are lit.
