חנוכה could be split into two words: חנו+כה, which means "rested on 25". The Hashmonaim rested from the war on 25 of Kislev.

The reason Yavan was able to take control of the Bais HaMikdash is that Yavan = 66 and Haichal = 65

  • +1. There's a source for this observation. Do you know what it is, by any chance? (I don't.)

  • @msh210: I read it in Sefer HoToda'ah (book of our heritage), but it was the student edition and didn't bring the source.

How about this: Number of pesukim in the parasha of the korbanos of the nesiim (and the gematria of chanuka).

In Parshas Bereishis, the 25th word is Ohr.

In Parshas Ma'asei, the 25th stop is Chashmonah.

In Parahas Emor, immediately after the Yamim Tovim is the Menorah, a hint to Chanukah. After that is the Shulchan, a hint to Purim and its mitzvos of food.
