Tuesday marked the first day of Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights.

The Levitt family in Naperville celebrated by constructing an eight-foot menorah in their yard featuring blue LED light bulbs illuminating each of the eight candle holders.

The National menorah was lit in a holiday ceremony near the White House Tuesday evening. The U.S. Marine band played as thousands looked on.
