Saying Al Hanisim in the Birkat Hamazon

Saying Al Hanisim in the Birkat Hamazon
Day: Tuesday
Date: December 8, 2015
Parshat: Miketz
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 682

During Hanukkah, Al Hanisim is said in Birkat Hamazon. It is said just before "Al Hakol Amonai Elokeinu Anahanu Modim Lach." A person who forgot to say it at that point can go back and say it as long as he hasn't yet said Hashem's name at the end of that beracha. After that point, the proper procedure is to wait until the Harahamans and say "Harahaman Hu Ya'Aseh Imanu Nisim Veniflaot Kemo She'asah La'Avoteinu Bayamim Hahem Baziman Hazeh, and then continue with "Bimey Matityah Ben Yohanan..."
When saying Al Hamihyah, no mention of Hanukkah is made. A person who added his own mention of Hanukkah however, does not need to say the beracha again
