It's starting to look a lot like ... Chanukah. That's the minor eight-day Jewish holiday that's become a major one in our time, perhaps because of its proximity to Christmas and the demand for some kind of Jewish equivalent.

But the same blessings are still recited, the same songs sung. There are latkes to be eaten, and children's games to be played with a spinning top ... but just what does Chanukah celebrate?

Answer: A successful Jewish revolt against a Syrian empire ruled by the Seleucid dynasty of Greek kings some 2,200 years ago.
