Two years ago Chanukah coincided with Thanksgiving. This year the eight days of Chanukah coincide with the period between Christmas and New Years Day.
So Jamie Elman and Ely Batalion, the two Canadian jokers who refer to themselves as your favorite nudniks of YidLife Crisis, have been having fun writing parodies of many of the songs that we've become accustomed to hearing in December.
As they say on their website, "while you’re at work shredding those potatoes, yingling bells, or chugging gogl-mogl or eggnog, this platter of oy-ful melodies will make your season even brighter. Or, at least, not any darker!"
With Chanukah starting in just 11 days, we're opening the Chanukah video season with their YidLife Crisis Guide to the Holidays, a hilarious rendering of the December classics in funny Yiddish, with even funnier English subtitle translations.
