Christmas time is pretty sweet whether you celebrate it or not. Time off, an excuse to pig out on either ham or Chinese food, sports galore, people more jolly than their normal miserable selves (most likely for aforementioned reasons). But let us not forget there is another significant holiday happening right at this very moment, none other than the festival of lights, Chanukah.
We all know the Christmas songs. I don’t care if you were raised by wolves, at one point you probably stumbled into some sort of civilized community (or a Walmart during the holiday rush) that was playing Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. They’re hard to avoid and every year your boiling point is put to the test with how much you can hear and not want to strangle someone with a shiny red bow. Dillon Francis however flipped the script and just dropped a remix to the ultimate jewish turn up anthem, Hava Nagila which you can check out right below.
What an absolute monster of a track. This is the perfect thing to blast in your home when your Bubbe is over for Chanukah asking about your love life or how to do something on her iPhone 4. Can’t imagine hearing this dance floor weapon without fighting the urge to flatten someone like a latke. Hava Nagila is as much of a jewish staple as putting brunch on Instagram and getting a car as a gift when you’re 17. Glad it got the modern treatment it deserved, Happy Holidays!
