Kislev to Teves.

Chanuka is the only Yom Tov that starts in one month and ends in another. From Kislev (the third) to Teves (the fourth) of the winter months. Short Version. Longer Version.

Rosh Chodesh Teves, the middle of Chanuka. (5772/2011).

Why Chanuka is at the end of the month and actually goes from (the end [disappearing moon] of) one month into (the birth of) another, Rosh Chodesh Teves is where ruchniyus translates into Gashmiyus.

8 Teves.

The full moon of the month “Where the body has delight from the body”.
