“The Chanukah Song” is a humorous 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, 1994.1 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.
