Isn't it obvious that it is spelled×—× ×•×›×”That's Chet or ches, Noon, vov or vav, kaf or kof and he or hey.Simple isn't it.

It is really quite simple
Since ebrew goes from right to left, let's start at the "beginning." It is most correct to place an AH at the end since in Hebrew the final "sound" is a komatz - heh (a-h). One "N" is proper since the "nun" in Chanukah does not have a "dagesh" (dot) in it. CH should be used since H clearly does not depict the "ches" sound, while the CH at least hints to it. So it has to be CHANUKAH.

Chanukah, or whichever way you want to spell it is a lot like Tanakh, which could also be Tenach for the overall Torah and Jewish texts.That was a pretty long video trying to figure out the spelling of Chunukah (among other spellings), but nonetheless a thought-prevoker!Other than that, it's all about Hebrew and English transliteration.
