Every December 1st, those of us that don’t have satellite radio in our cars resign to the fact that Christmas music will be blasting from our speakers as we’re sitting in traffic during the morning commute. While some Christmas ditties are fun to sing along to, wouldn’t it be nice to have a few Chanukah tunes thrown into the mix?

If you answered yes, then you can thank Rachel Bloom. Earlier this week, she released a fun (and funny) Jewish take on Christmas classic ‘Santa Baby’ (performed by everyone from Madonna to Calista Flockhart). Bloom’s parody- entitled ‘Chanukah Honey’- is “a sexy holiday song about how Jewish girls hit on Jewish guys.”

‘Chanukah Honey’, written by Bloom, Jack Dolgren, Dan Gregor and Jerome Kurtenbach, is off Bloom’s album ‘Suck It, Christmas!!! (A Chanukah Album), and features lyrics such as “Chanukah Honey, you got your MBA from Penn, Amen. That is such a good school,” and “Chanukah Honey, at the JCC you play basketball, so tall, you must be five foot eight.”

Watch the video for the song that is sure to become a Chanukah classic below.
