Chanukkah the victory of light over darkness.
Idolatry, darkness, is being separate from Hashem, which produces death.
Light is connecting to Hashem, to His Torah, to the Tree of Life, thus bringing forth life. Chanukah is the victory of life over death.
In our everyday life we see death still exist, there is still grief and mourning, but we may know that when we commit ourselves to life we are already living in the future, the future that is as described in Isaiah 25:9
בִּלַּ֤ע הַמָּ֙וֶת֙ לָנֶ֔צַח וּמָחָ֨ה אֲדֹנָ֧י יֱהֹוִ֛ה דִּמְעָ֖ה מֵעַ֣ל כׇּל־פָּנִ֑ים
“He will destroy death forever, and the L-rd G-d will wipe away the tears from all faces”
