Few things scream that the holidays have arrived like a good Adam Sandler tune. So you’ll be happy to know that Sandler’s Chanukah Song has been revived.

It’s all part of the Saturday Night Live holiday special. With the show digging deep into its archives to bring back the 1994 classic skit.

As you likely know, the song is a celebration of Hanukkah and those who honor it. The large list includes the rich and famous, as Sandler sings.

“When you feel like the only kid in town without a Christmas tree, here’s a list of people who are Jewish just like you and me; David Lee Roth lights the menorah, so do James Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the late Dinah Shore-ah,” Sandler sings.

The song debuted on the 20th season of SNL, on the Weekend Update segment of the show, and actually on the seventh day of Hanukkah at the time.

“When I was kid, this time of year always left me felt a little left out, because in school there were so many Christmas songs, and all us Jewish kids had was the song Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel,” Sandler told the SNL audience back in ’94. “So I wrote a brand new Hanukkah song for you Jewish kids to sing, and I hope you like it.”

With that, history was made, and now, it’s back in circulation to the delight of many. It’s honestly one of the most epic skits AND songs that SNL has produced. It’s truly a staple during the holidays. I bet Adam Sandler didn’t know what hit him when he created it. Who would have thought it would become a great sensation? A national treasure, dare I say? Whatever it is, it truly is an epic song.
