TUNES TO RING IN THE HOLIDAY SEASON
I dont know who originally wrote the song, but whenever
I hear Silver Bells, I think of Christmas in New York City.
Its understated. I love how its able to make the biggest, most
disgusting city in the world seem tranquil and quaint.

Bing Crosby
Silver Bells
A wildly underrated group, Hershel and the Hanukkah
Goblins never really made it big. Reppin upstate N.Y.s
BNai Shalom, these boys were known to make shabbat
pretty gimel. This group puts the high in high holidays.

Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins
Goblins Freestyle
This is my absolute favorite holiday song, but only when
Queen Mariah sings it. I cant even listen to anyone elses ver-
sion. Her range is incredible, and that notorious high note at
the end restores my faith in humanity. Hallelujah!
Suzy Berkowitz, A&E Editor
Mariah Carey
O Holy Night
Theres nothing that gets me more excited for the festival
of lights than listening to Adam Sandler sing his heart out
about Hanukkah. It really makes make feel great that Im
like Hall of Famer Rod Carew.
