For eight nights, Hanukkah is celebrated with prayer, lighting the candles in the menorah, and food. Children play games (dreidel), sing songs, and exchange gifts. The menorah has nine candles, a candle for every night, plus a helper candle placed in the middle. Latkes are served with applesauce and sour cream. The dates of Hanukkah change because this holiday follows the lunar cycle. This year, 2017, it is celebrated on December 12th to December 20th.
