Chanukah, the Festival of lights. Eight gifts over eight wonderful nights.

For a holiday with so much promise, Chanukah falls short in one crucial regard, music. There are the traditional awful songs, and there is one – make that two with the sequel - great Adam Sandler song that everyone knows and loves, and that became so popular thanks to our search for that one perfect Holiday song.

Well, they say that good things come in threes, so we did some further research and came up with three more. From Matisyahu singing what should become the official Hanukkah song, to South Park giving their take on the Dreidel song, to what we hope is a satirical Chanukah song rapped up in a red gangster bow. All three should be loved – or at the very least, tolerated, and played at your next office Chanukkah party.

From all of us at Shalom Life, a happy, healthy Chanukah to all!
