The dates of Hanukkah are determined by the Hebrew calendar.

The Hebrew calendar is a lunisolar calendar, which means that it follows the lunar and solar cycles instead of relying strictly on predetermined days.
This gives a calendar that follows the cycles of nature more closely.
But for most people it’s a bit harder because the Gregorian calendar is used world wide, but is not compatible with the Hebrew calendar.
This way, Hanukkah falls on a different date each year on the Gregorian calendar.

The 8 days of Hanukkah correspond with the 8 candles on the menorah, which is the famous Hanukkah candle with the 9 lights.
The light in the middle is the “attendant light”.
Each day the attendant light is lit and one candle for each day of Hanukkah.
