    1. A sweater for those who know just getting "smashed" on Hanukkah won't cut it the same as getting "shamashed."

    *The shamash is the candle on the menorah that gets lit first every night of Hanukkah and is used to light the other candles.

    Get it from The Workout Princess on Etsy for $24.99+ (sizes S–2XL).

    2. A jumper that'll make you more excited for Hanukkah than the rabbi printed on it is.

    Holla for some challah, amirite?

    Get it from Amazon for $65 (sizes S–2XL).

    3. A top to show how ballin' you are, and also probably how hungry you are for a warm bowl of your bubbie's matzo ball soup.

    Get it from Macy's for $24.99 (originally $34, sizes S–XL).

    4. A cute sweater for anyone who's like, sort of, maybe, kind of fluent in Yiddish.

    OY VEY!

    Get it from Teepublic for $38 (eight colors, sizes S–2XL).

    5. A jumper that'll simply express the most important way you plan on getting "lit" this holiday.

    Promising Review: "This very soft and comfy sweater runs true to size. The blue color is very pretty and comes as shown! I am so happy to have found something comfy and fun to wear during the holiday. I bought if for myself, my daughter, and my daughter-in-law to enjoy wearing during Chanukkah!" —CarolAS

    Get it from Nordstrom for $98 (sizes XS–L).

    6. A crew neck to make you laugh and then inspire you to cook some challah french toast or something.

    And if you make challah french toast, send me some.

    Get it from Human for $35 (four colors, sizes S–3XL).

    7. A pullover so you can channel your inner Schmidt from New Girl. But, you can appreciate this hilarious print even without watching the show.

    8. A sweatshirt that everyone at the ugly sweater party might appreciate more than you do.

    Anyone else suddenly in the mood for chocolate gelt?

    Get it from Human for $35 (four colors, sizes XS–3XL).

    9. A jumper to show other people how we Jews wish each other a happy holiday.

    Okay, we don't actually say this, but it's funny, maybe we should start.

    Get it from WET HOUSE on Etsy for $26+ (two colors, sizes XS–3XL).

    10. A cardigan for the Jew who really doesn't like being confined to a sweater, damnit.

    Promising Review: "Even though it says juniors, the medium fit well as a regular women's medium. It's not too heavy and made nicely for the price. You can wear it ironically, or not." —Lori R

    Get it from Target for $27.99 (sizes XS–2XL).

    11. A basic pullover decked out with multi-colored LED lights that'll make you shine brighter than the candles on the menorah.

    Maybe. Hopefully.

    Get it from LizaDeesShoppe on Etsy for $64.95 (five colors, sizes S–L).

    12. A sweater so cute, you might just have a Hanukkah happier than a llama wearing a yarmulka.

    Get it from Burlington Coat Factory for $14.99 (originally $28, sizes S–L).

    13. A poncho embellished with Stars of David and dreidels will probably make you the trendiest person at the ugly sweater party, or just in general.

    Get it from Century 21 for $24.99 (originally $48, sizes S/M–L/XL).

    14. A shirt (not a sweater), to give people a gentle reminder of why Hanukkah is so great.

    Along with playing dreidel and eating latkes and jelly doughnuts, of course.

    Get it from Charming Charlie for $19 (sizes M–XL).
