Hanukkah – 12 Ways to Spell Hanukkah, Which is Correct? Who Knows?

No Gravatar

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.

Saturday, December 8, 2012 (Hanukkah)

Dear Say It With eCards Club Members:

I have to say, I hate when holidays fall on or at the end of Shabbos. Things always get mixed up and I never know when to send my newsletters so that they don’t get lost in the weekend’s mail!  Nice thing about Hanukkah is that it lasts for 8 days! 😉  That said…  I’m truly amazed tonight is the first night of Hanukkah!

DID YOU KNOW… there are less than 25 days left to 2012. That excites me. I’m so looking forward to 2013 as a year of new beginnings.  How about you?

As always, I hope you and yours are doing well!!!  Most are busy with the year end hustle and bustle, getting ready for the holiday season.  I miss Manhattan at this time of year with its beautiful lights, holiday music and people scurrying around, running from store to store seeking their next bargain. It feels like another lifetime.

Hanukkah

FOR ME… The BEST Part of Hanukkah

Besides the joy and festivities of Hanukkah, the thing I like best is that it lasts for 8 days.  Thus, offering 8 opportunities to connect!

Below are the links to the Say It With eCards Hanukkah eCards.  There is a vast collection of over 200 Hanukkah eCards in a variety of 11 Categories.

Quite simply Hanukkah will always be double edged *for me* as it carries the memories of my friend’s son’s sudden passing a few years ago. Like everything else, diversity is an excellent teacher.  During that time of tragedy I learned a great deal about myself…

Because of this “sudden” horrific event (he died from a fall in the bathroom)… my Say It With eCards membership benefited via the creation of many more Hanukkah eCards designs and selections than were ever planned for.  Let me explain…

I was so traumatized and in shock that my sleeping patterns were off the charts for about two weeks.  Those that know me, know my sleeping patterns are NOT great in normal times! 😉

During that time I could be found at the computer designing. It was the only thing that gave me some peace as I was able to lose myself in my designs. I look at that period as a time of  “painful production!”  For me… Creativity is like a salve at stressful times!

What does this mean to you?
* YOU have OVER 200 Hanukkah eCards in 10-11 categories to choose from.

However, there is a HUGE lesson in this.  I NEVER consider myself to be unique in my feelings.  One never knows what is “really” going on in another’s life or home as not everything is shared.  Holidays are often times of stress and loneliness for many.  This is why it is so VERY IMPORTANT to keep in touch with those we care about and even just acquaintances.

You JUST NEVER know, IF YOUR eCard is the ONLY holiday communication they will receive, thus lighting up their day BECAUSE YOU remembered them! WE ALL KNOW… A kind word goes a long way!  Holiday time is a time to Say Thank You, I Care About You! Just Wanted to Say Hello, etc.

The INTERFAITH / SEASON’S GREETINGS are here:

Through the years I have been asked to design for those of blended families – celebrating Hanukkah and Christmas.  I struggled with this ONLY because I did not want to offend.  I did not come from a religious family, so it was not a stretch for me personally.

A few years ago I designed what I hope is an artsy, tasteful and fun collection. No matter what… there is something for everyone at Say It With eCards. These have been graciously accepted and many of them sent through the years.

On A Personal Note (My Gratitude Journal)

I’m been keeping a Success Journal for 1 1/2 years.  However…

I’ve wanted to add a dedicated (separate) Gratitude Journal for awhile now. I kept saying I’ll start it at a specific time.  The problem, the year was quickly passing as the days were marching on whether I was or not, So…  I FINALLY STARTED when there were 75 Days left UNTIL 2013.

My Journal is called: “75 Days of Gratitude Until 2013.”  Quite original, yes? 😉 I’ve written in it religiously each night before bedtime ~EVEN on those days that were not so gratifying or filled with challenges.

THE LESSON HERE… THERE IS ALWAYS something to be grateful for!  #1 is always similar.  I AM grateful to be alive to enjoy life’s opportunities as well as it’s challenges, because challenges contain lessons and aha moments.  We learn a great deal from life’s challenges.

On closing… I would like to wish You and Yours a Happy Hanukkah and an early Season’s Greetings.

Lots of Love & Gratitude to YOU… “my extended family!”

Depending on when you read this… Shabbat Shalom, Shavua Tov and/or Happy Hanukkah!

P.S. With the holidays upon us, I WILL be in touch MORE often!

Luv & Hugs,
