12 Days of Christmas Music 2016: 5th Day, “Candlelight”

This year Hanukkah falls on the same day as Christmas! (It starts at sunset on Christmas Eve.) Given that Hanukkah is the celebration of light, and since the theme this year is light, I couldn’t pass up the chance to do a Hanukkah shoutout. The Maccabeats make it easy: this spoof on Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” gives a condensed history of the origin of Hanukkah, and it also features my neighborhood! I was watching along and thought, “Hey… hey, I know exactly where that is! Yep, there’s the George Washington Bridge, and there are the Cloisters, and yep, there’s the Hudson Parkway.” I walked home through the park you can see just days ago.

Enjoy this Jewish/dance club holiday mashup!

  1. Cleaning up my inbox and watched this one more time. Did you see their Hamilton Hannukah? It plays directly after this one. They’re good! Love you, LaRae
