The reason why Jewish people have Hanukkah is that one day King Antiochus, King of the Seleucid Empire, wanted everyone to pray to the same gods (that he believed in) so, he conquered Jerusalem. He demanded the people convert or he'd destroy all the temples, even the big golden one in the centre of the city.

One day, Judah Maccabee and his brothers made an army to fight the Seleucid army. They won, and fought hard because they were fighting for what they believed in. When the brothers first went into the temple and they saw it was ruined with cracks and no oil in the menorah. While they were cleaning they found oil and they all knew it would only last for one night. Surprisingly it lasted for eight days so they knew that god was with them. So goodnight children , I hope you enjoyed the story

Joking about the children bit but I do hope you enjoyed it because I did a lot of research.
