Adam Sandler Chanukah Song is cowritten by Adam and Saturday Night Live writers Lewis Morton and Ian Maxtone-Graham.
The song was originally performed by Adam on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update on December 3, 1994. Adam subsequently performed the song as part of his stand-up act, later updating it with new lyrics. All variations center on the theme of Jewish children feeling alienated during Christmas.
