Best Answer

Because the Hebrew calendar is based on the lunar cycle, the dates of Jewish holidays according to the Gregorian calendar change from year to year. For this reason, the beginning of Hanukkah can range from late November to late December.

In 2021, Hanukkah begins at sundown on Sunday, November 28, and continues through Monday, December 6.
