Pull Up a Chair: Festival of Lights (and sound)

This was an unusual year since Hanukkah coincided with Thanksgiving creating Thanksgivukkah. So to celebrate, here’s Adam Sandler’s classic, “The Hanukkah Song (v. 1)”.

And now that Suzanne has opened up the Christmas Holiday Music Season with her traditional posting of Robert Earl Keene’s “Merry Christmas from the Family”, let’s share our favorite holiday music. All are welcome – satirical, secular and holy traditional; Hanukkahn, Festivussy or Blasphemous.

A few random strays for starters:

“Put a Little Love in Your Heart” (perhaps this qualifies as an FSM carol).

“Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” (Nat King Cole)

“2000 Miles” (The Pretenders)

“Away in a Manager” (Emmylou Harris, so sweet)

“Christmas Wrapping” (The Waitresses, a nostalgic favorite of my twin cousin & me)

“Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht” (St. Thomas Choir of Leipzig)

“Christmas Boogie” (Because Canned Heat).

“Oh Holy Night” (Billy Gilman)

What, and whose versions are your faves?
