Chanukah Miracles

so whats the miracle of chanukah all about? the jews saw that the greek culture was overtaking the jewish people, so a few brave men who were led by an old brave and wise leader took on the fight with the world's superpower! and what happened? G-d showed the world that when you act like he wants you to act even when it goes above human reason then G-d responds in turn. and the jews won and got the temple back and the land and lit the chanukah menorah, and that's when the main miracle occurred, oil that was according to the laws of nature as described by physics and chemistry was only supposed to be lit for one day maybe a day and a few hours actually burned for a full eight days! showing the world that G-d made the laws of nature and He himself is not at all bound by them.

And what would be the miracle in our times, when each person decides to change his or her own life and do an extra good deed, or a commandment from G-d, showing that the world is a G-dly place and is ready for the coming of Moshiach!
