Famous Christmas Songs written by Jewish Songwriters

It's 12:05 AM on December 26th, so I'm not really too late for this one...

I found this fun list of famous Christmas songs written by Jewish songwriters. This blog has fun facts and audio clips!

1) White Christmas - Irving Berlin

2) Rudolph, the Red Nose Reindeer - Johnny Marks (most likely not his real name/spelling)

3) Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! - Julius Kerwin Stein and Samuel Cohen

4) Silver Bells - Jay Livingston and Ray Evans

5) You're a Mean one Mr. Grinch - Albert Hague in 1966 (with words/lyrics by Dr. Seuss

So like other Jews on Christmas, I spend it with my lovely cousins, opening presents with Christmas celebrating relatives and at the movies. I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and I loved it. Omigawd, I think I'm becoming a Brad Pitt fan.

Happy Holidays everyone and have a good new year!
