Tonight is the first night of Chanukah/Hanukkah/Chanukkah!

Yes, tomorrow is also another holiday. Tonight, however, it's all about the lights! So have a potato latke or some sufganiyot (fried jelly donuts) in memory of the single-day's-worth of oil that lasted for eight, and the light (and Light) shed thereby, for it is that miracle that we celebrate with eight days of light from our menorahs (or, more properly, chanukiahs).
