The festival is observed in Jewish homes by the kindling of lights on each night of the holiday and spinning a dreidel. Various menorot used for Hanukkah, also called Hanukiot.
The dreidel, or sevivon in Hebrew, is a four-sided spinning top that children play with on Hanukkah. Each side is imprinted with a Hebrew letter. These letters are an acronym for the Hebrew words "Nes Gadol Haya Sham"A great miracle happened there" (referring to the miracle of the oil that took place in the Beit Hamikdash).
Let's see some of my Israeli and non-Israeli friends making their Hanukiot and Dreidels -
