REVISED October 16, 2021

For whatever reason, there are a number of Jewish Holidays with different spellings and all seem to be correct ~depending on who is spelling it or who you talk to.  However, if you Google each, they are all there! I guess if Google says it’s so, IT IS! 😉

A few years ago I wrote a blog post about the many different ways Hanukkah is spelled.  This is a spinoff of that blog post as the problem raises it’s confusing head each and every Hanukkah season.

Here are at least 12 variations of how to spell Hanukkah.  Why are there so many ways, I have no clue!

If you search the Internet the following spellings may be found for Hanukkah:

  • hanukkah
  • hannukkah (this is my personal favorite and the one I use most often)
  • hanukah
  • hannukah
  • hanukka
  • hanuka
  • chanukkah
  • channukkah
  • chanukah
  • channukah
  • chanukka
  • chanuka

Hanukkah is also known as “The Festival of Lights” and “The Feast of Dedication,” and lasts for a period of eight (8) days.
