Yes. Thank God.
It’s one of the few non-God ordained festivals like Purim. Unlike Tabernacles or Pesach, which were ordained by God..But Chanukah commemorates some important events, despite it not being in the list of God-ordained festivals..It’s interesting that historically, the first time the Greeks came, Alexander was met by the High Priest, who read him the scroll of Daniel. Which ~200 years before had predicted Alexander. Apparently the general fell to his knees in shock. He treated then Israelites well..Later, though, that was forgotten in the endless wars between Ptolemies and Selucids, and schmucks like Antiochus Epiphanes came on the scene. And was defeated.
