A Hanukkah Song


For John, BLUFThis isn't just for the Jews, but for the Christians also.  It is a neis.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Hanukkah this year (2015) begins on Sunday, 6 December, at sunset, and ends Monday, 14 December at nightfall.

In honor of this very important holiday I link to this song, All About That Neis, by The Maccabeats.  The song is actually from last year, but I missed it then.  A catchy tune.

Here is a sample of the Lyrics:

Because you know we're all about that neis bout that neis no oil
We're all about that neis bout that neis no oil
We're all about that neis bout that neis no oil
We're all about that neis bout that neis

Yeah its pretty clear the Maccabees were few
They wouldn't take it take it
Being told what to do
They wanted freedoms that we today embrace
All the rights to pray in all the right places

And here is a link to the First Chapters of First and Second Maccabees, the story the song is based on.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

  So, Neis is Hebrew for miracle.
