Does this day mentioned in Haggai 2 correspond to the Hanukkah festival?

Is this the divine desired blessing of prosperity that purified the Second Temple, or is it not related at all to the Hanukkah festival taking place the following day?  

Haggai 2:18 - 19

NKJV - 18 Consider now from this day forward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, from the day that the foundation of the LORD's temple was laid - consider it: 19 'Is the seed still in the barn? As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have not yielded fruit. But from this day I will bless you.'"
