Each year when Christmas rolls around, Jewish comedians have a lot to say about growing up celebrating Hanukkah (widely portrayed as a dull holiday) instead of Christmas. Their main complaint, of course, is that they were forced to watch their non-Jewish friends have all sorts of fun opening presents under a giant tree, enjoying the avalanche of cheery Christmas television and singing up-beat carols extolling the alleged virtues of Christianity.

Yet another well-founded complaint is that unless you walk around wearing an “I’m A Jew” t-shirt, folks assume you celebrate Christmas. And, well, that can be annoying. But musical comedian Katie Goodman explains it best, through song. Check out “I’ll Be Jewish For Christmas” below and let us know what you think!
