Hanukkah marks the victory of the Hasmoneans over the Roman Empire. Somewhere around 160 AD. They rebelled against the empire in order to preserve their Jewish identity.

For years they managed to maintain an independent state and repel the Roman Legion. Over the years a number of miracles have occurred, according to tradition.

The most famous miracle is attributed to a small oil can found in the temple, after it was freed from the yoke of the Romans. The small jug, supply oil to the light for eight days. Using the oil, light the second temple lamp.
