The Jewish holiday Hanukkah starts tonight and lasts through next Wednesday. In theory, that means people could get presents on all eight nights. But do they?
According to a new survey, a surprising number of people say . . . yes. 68% of people who celebrate Hanukkah get something on every single night.
Here are a few other results from the survey . . .
- Three-quarters of people spell Hanukkah starting with an H. The rest spell it starting with a C, Chanukah.
- 10% of Americans say they celebrate the holiday. But since less than 3% of Americans are Jewish, that means there are tens of millions of non-Jews who get in on the action.
- And 12% of people say they don’t like the signature Hanukkah dish of potato pancakes. Of the people who do, women prefer to use sour cream as a topping for them over applesauce . . . men prefer applesauce over sour cream.
