The bright eight day Jewish festival of Light, Hanukkah, is almost here. Starting this year on Dec, 6 it commemorate the triumph of light over darkness and spirit over material.

Other Hanukkah traditions include spending time with dear ones and sharing Hanukkah gifts with family, friends, and business associates.
