same'akh


Explanation:
The whole phrase would be 'khanuka same'akh'. You use the masculine form of 'happy' (female = smekha), since the implied noun is 'khag', i.e. festival: you can say 'khag khanuka same'akh', or without the 'khag': 'khanuka same'akh'.

By coincidence, all 3 words have the sound 'kh', pronounced like the Scottish 'ch' in 'loch' or the Hebrew/Yiddish 'chutzpah' (NOT like 'ch' in 'cheap').

Hanukka sameah or Hag Urim sameah


Explanation:
Sameah(m)/smeha(f) = happy
"urim" is a form of plural of "or" which means "light" since Hanukka is among others a holiday of the light.
