Robanukah was first mentioned in "Fear of a Bot Planet" and is supposedly the "holiest two weeks on the robot calendar." It was invented by Bender Bending Rodriguez as an excuse to skip work. It is celebrated one month after Robomadan, which itself is celebrated one month after Robonzaa (which is a holiday that tributes his ancestral prototypes and is celebrated by drinking contests), both of which were also invented by Bender.
The holiday later appeared in the second segment of "The Futurama Holiday Spectacular". By then, it gained more traditions, and lasts for six and a half weeks (2^16 seconds) instead of two.

- Playing a game with a Droidel, which is like a Dreidel, except it is rigged so that Bender always wins.

From a writers draft (unverified) Music: "The first Robanukah"
A chorus of children sign accompanied by a folk guitar.
Gather 'round ye robots wise, Raise your flagons to the skies Hear a tale of robot might About that first Roban'kah night.
It's time to lift your robot, Way high up in his chair, Spin him 'round and 'round again, Like ya just don't care!
We celebrate Robanukah-- A robot jubilee! Drinking, smoking, having drinks So robots can run free!
