How Should “Hanukkah” Be Spelled?

Some of the things people debate about are pretty silly, such as how “Hanukkah” should be spelled. Yes, there are many ways, but it all means the same. Personally, I have only seen “Hanukkah” and “Chanukah” commonly used. (For what it’s worth, auto-correct will reject anything else.)

I prefer the version without a “C” because most people who aren’t Jewish don’t know that it’s silent and that makes things tricky. To keep it simple and easy to read/pronounce, the simplest version is best—Hanukkah.


I’d love to know how you lovely folks spell it. Leave a comment and let me know which version you like.
