Adam Sandler "The Hanukkah Song" (1994) - Comedy Recess Holiday Edition

I am normally not the biggest fan of Adam Sandler, but this is a classic that comes back every year.

"The Hanukkah Song" is a novelty song written by comedian Adam Sandler with Saturday Night Live writers Lewis Morton and Ian Maxtone-Graham and originally performed by Sandler on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update on December 3, 1994. Sandler subsequently performed the song as part of his stand-up act, later updating it with new lyrics. All variations center on the theme of Jewish children feeling alienated during the Christmas season, and Sandler's listing of Jewish celebrities (both real and fictional) as a way of sympathizing with their situation.

A classic never grows old. "The Hanukkah Song" is in this week's Comedy Recess segment. Enjoy !!!!
