Hanukkah

Hanukkah began tonight at sundown.

 

There are 8 days of Hanukkah -- on the first day one candle is lit and thereafter they are progressively increased. The center candle, the shammus, is used to light the 8 candles of Hanukkah. The candles are placed on the menorah from right to left (as hebrew is read right to left) but the order they are lit is from left to right (because you pay honor to the newest candle first).
