Latkes are potato pancakes prepared for Hanukkah, a Jewish holiday that in addition to other things, celebrates the 'miracle of light'. This refers to the fact that after the Maccabee Jews defeated the Greek Syrians and came back to light the Menora of the Temple in Jerusalem, there was no more pure olive oil to be found, except for a small amount that ended up miraculously lasting for eight days (until more could be found/processed).
