Do you prefer Hanukkah or Chanukah?

When do you start thinking about the holiday? Are there other Jewish holidays that mean more to you? It's such a rich religion, I always appreciate learning more about it!

My husband's family is Jewish, so we celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah. It starts on the 20th this year.

Most of the time I spell it with an H, unless I'm using it with someone I know who uses a C. I think everyone sees their way as the right or normal way to spell it, so I try to adapt to whomever I'm talking. I'm sure it doesn't make a difference to them! :-)
