In the centuries between the Maccabean Revolt and the destruction of the Bayis Sheni, how was Chanukah commemorated at the Beis HaMikdash (other than the addition of prayers like Al Hanisim)?
Since there seem to be some connections between Sukkos and Chanukah, it makes me think of Simchas Beis Hashoeiva. Was there any kind of celebration or ceremony on Chanukah like that? Did people tend to gather at the Beis HaMikdash especially for the holiday? (I imagine a giant public menorah lighting, but I suppose that's anachronistic, not to mention redundant with the actual menorah inside.) So what actually did happen?
