All Day Chanukah (Multi-Day event) (Multi-Day Event)
Jewish holyday: Chanukah (Dedication) begins at sunset the evening before the 25th day of the month of Kislev, in remembrance of how the vastly outnumbered Jews, led by the Maccabees, miraculously won a major victory in 168 BCE against the occupying Syrians, who had outlawed Judaism and defiled the Temple of Jerusalem by worshipping idols of Greek Gods. After their victory, the Jews rededicated the Holy Temple to G-D by relighting the ner tamid(Eternal Light), but there was only enough oil for one day. Miraculously, the oil lasted 8 days, until more could be secured, so the light of the Temple could burn constantly.[i] A celebration of Jewish identity, religious freedom, and the triumph of light over darkness, the Festival of Lights is characterized by lighting an additional candle in the menorah each night. Other customs include making latkes, giving children Chanukah gelt (money or chocolate coins), and playing dreidel (a spinning top with the Hebrew lettersnungimmelhei and shin which stands for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham, meaning "a Great Miracle Happened There”).[ii]

All Day Bodhi Day
Buddhist holyday: Bodhi Day (Day of Enlightenment) celebrates Siddharta Gautama’s attainment of Enlightenment while meditating under a fig tree 2,600 years ago, when he perceived the nature of the world and the cause of suffering, becoming the Buddha (Awakened One). On this day of remembrance and meditation, Pure Land Buddhists reflect on the cycle of life, the Eightfold Path, and the Four Noble Truths throughout the night and eat a meal of rice and milk, which the young girl Sujata offered the Buddha after his Awakening. Homes may be decorated with fig trees and images of the Buddha, and candles may be lit or lights may be turned on in the evening for the next 30 days to symbolize Enlightenment.[i]
