Songs of the Season

“Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson

This upbeat song reminds me of lying on the couch with my family and drinking hot cocoa while watching the movie “The Holiday.”

“The Chanukah Song” by Adam Sandler

Sandler does a fantastic job making up words just to rhyme with Chanukah, like “wannakah” and “funnukah” to give the song some humor.

“Sleigh Ride” by Ella Fitzgerald

This is one of my favorite holiday songs because it reminds me of Buddy the Elf entering New York City in the classic holiday movie “Elf.”
