Ocho Candelikas
Hanukkah Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou

Ocho Kandelikas, a Hanukkah song in the language Ladino from the Sephardic Jewish tradition.  The song says that “beautiful Hanukkah is here” and describes all the wonderful things that will happen this time of year.  The songs counts out the eight candles for the eight days of Hannukah.  

I’ve added an English verse here but if you speak Spanish, you will especially enjoy this song!   

The holiday of lights is here
Good friends and happiness to share
Sweets with honey for us to eat
Candles to light and friends to greet

    One little candle… (etc.)
    8 little candles …. For me

Hanukah lindo sta aki
ocho candelas para mi
    Una kandelika, dos kandelikas,
    tres kandelikas, kuatro kandelikas,
    sintju kandelikas, sysh kandelikas,
    sieto kandelikas, ocho kandelikas para mi.

Muchas fiestas vo fazar,
con alegrias i plazar
    Una kandelika (etc.)

Los pastelikas vo kumer,
con almendrikas i la miel
    Una kandelika (etc.)
