comment Why do we celebrate Chanukah?
You made out in your comment that 150 years is a central point of yours. The duration and status of the dynasty seem to be the foundation of the question. I strongly recommend an edit, if not a total rewrite.

comment Why do we celebrate Chanukah?
I don't really understand your premise. First, you link to a Wikipedia article that directly contradicts your timeline; second, you're saying that, because they had political and diplomatic problems half a century later, the initial victory should not be celebrated; third, you're assuming that the military victory itself is the reason for the celebration, which I think needs to be substantiated in order to validate the question. Based on your comment to the answer, I don't believe that you're trolling, but your question still needs work, IMO. Voting to close as unclear what you're asking.

Your second paragraph seems (to me) more thorough.

Ok, if you say so.

Maybe it's out of ignorance, but based in the fact that they should cover their heads for a Berachah, as you've pointed out?
