Hanukkah, or the Festival of Lights, is a Jewish tradition where for eight days, candles on a special candelabrum called the Menorah, is lit. There is one extra candle on the Menorah for more practical purposes, which is usually either higher or lower than the other candles.

Hanukkah celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem in second century BCE.
Kwaanza is an African-American-specific holiday brought about by Maulana Karenga in 1966, to ensure that the African-Americans had a holiday of their own. It is celebrated between Dec. 26 and Jan. 1, and usually ends in a feast and gift-giving on the final day.
