This might be a stupid question, but I'm going to ask it anyway. I see Hanukkah and Chanukah - is there a difference in the meaning of the two words?
In much of the English speaking world, its spelled Hannukah. In English, there isn't an equivalent to ח or chet (Chhhhh *spits a bit* hhhh is how you pronounce it). Both ways are right, but Chanukah I'd argue is closer to the original hebrew pronunciation.
