I know people call the last day of Chanuka "Zos Chanuka" (taken from Bamidbar 7:84, read on that day). How is it specially commemorated if at all? I've heard it is, but know no details.

I'm not asking why it is special, which has already been asked, but how. What do people do special on that day?

  • Seudas Mashiach?

  • It follows the general pattern of significance of day being directly proportional to length of Torah reading.
