Halacha - hannukka
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Channuka is not similar to Chol HaMoed and there is no restriction on doing melacha during Channuka. The exceptions would be that many do not take haircuts on any Rosh Chodesh based on Rebbi Yehuda HaChossid and women generally refrain from melacha during the first half hour following lighting the Channuka candles.
