“I’m feelin’ pretty great,
Got latkes on my plate,
I love this holiday,
I love this holiday.”
Wow. For all the hoopla around Christmas music, this Hanukkah-inspired cover of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” needs more attention. Now.
A perfectly-written ode to dreidels, the Maccabees, Hanukkah candles and more.
And if you’re not familiar with any of that, well, to quote the song, “The candles gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, and the dreidel’s gonna turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, got some history to learn, learn, learn, learn, learn.”
(Oh, and there’s a wonderful dreidel lesson midway through the video, during that talking part of “Shake It Off,” so pay attention.)
Sorry in advance, you won’t be able to get this one out of your head.
