The seasonal holidays of December are usually associated with Christmas, but millions of people across the United States will instead be celebrating Hanukkah. One of the most celebrated holidays of the Hebrew faith, Hanukkah commemorates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem during the Maccabean Revolt. The celebration lasts 8 days and nights and starts on the 25th day of Kislev in accordance with the traditional Hebrew calendar. This year's celebrations start at sunset on the 6th of December and last until nightfall on the 14th.
It isn't uncommon to hear new Christmas music each year, but it is strangely rare to hear new Hanukkah songs. Just in time for the season, the a cappella group known as The Maccabeats has released a new hit song for people celebrating Hanukkah everywhere.
