Aside from ripping open presents, what to do while the chanukiyah candles are burning?  Play dreidel, of course.  Chaunkah is the only Jewish holiday that comes with an officially sponsored game.   

The stocky little spinning top has whirled its beguiling spirals throughout the centuries.  It has become a symbol of the Jewish hope that the Maccabee victory will be revisited with good triumphant over evil once more. 

In Hebrew, the Dreidel is called Sevivon (Se-vi-vohn) 

More about the Dreidel.
