Hanukkah is around the corner!

Light the first Hanukkah candle the evening of December 12th
Second Candle – December 13
Third Candle – December 14
Fourth Candle – December 15
Fifth Candle – December 16
Sixth Candle – December 17
Seventh Candle – December 18
Eighth Candle – December 19

The candles are placed in the menorah from right to left (just as Hebrew is written from right to left), but are lit from left to right. The shammash candle is always the first one lit, and is used to light the others, starting with the left-most one. (Think of it as lighting the candle representing the newest night first.)
