"Excuse me, but can I be a Jew for a while?
you get to celebrate Chanukah, which last eight nights.
You get more presents than you do for Christmas,
but then again, you can't eat pork.
And it's been years.
Kosher all these..
Years go by, and I still feel Jewish.."

My Chanukah baby, I get high off your lovin',
Tell me what's menorah.
I want your Chanukah bush.
I want your Chanukah bush."

I made out clay, ba-rum-pum-pum, ba-rum-pum-pum, ba-rum-pum-pum.."

Britney Spears: Okay, y'all.. Chanukah is special holiday, where we, as Christians, take time out to think about forgiving our Jewish friends for killing our Lord. Oh, and on December 12th, I'll be appearing at Six Flags over Tulsa!

Mariah Carey: Um..Chanukah is a time to celebrate.. um.. what we have as individuals. In my case, I celebrate my great hair, my great ass, and my reat right side of my face. [ shakes it ]

Celine Dion: To all my Jewish friends back in Quebec, I would like to say, "Joyeaux Chanukah!" Not bad, eh? Huh?! Good, huh? You know, I will never forget the time I asked my mother, "What is Chanukah?" And she say, "Celine, it's a holiday celebrated by people who own all the movie studio and the plane." You go, girlfriend! Huh, pretty good, eh?

Announcer: It's classic Jewish holiday music, performed by singers who are allrepresented by Jewish management. Including Kid Rock, Shania Twain, Creed, Terence Trent D'Arby and Dixie Chicks. Along with your favorite Latino Chanukah song, performed by Ricky Martin!

Ricky Martin: [ singing and dancing ]
"Woke up in New York City, next door to a bagel shop.
What is a Chanukah dreidel, keeping work for a spinning top.
You eat potato pancakes for eight days and eight nights.
So come and celebrate this holy festival of lights.
Outside, inside out, let's all dance the horah.
Happy Chanukah, come on light the menorah!

Announcer: "And So This Is Chanukah". Presented by CBS and Target. It don't get more Jewish than that!
