Chanukah — the Jewish Festival of Lights — starts tomorrow night, Tuesday, December 20, 2011!  In the last couple of years several kid-friendly Chanukah YouTube videos have made the rounds, and I figured this was a good time to share them.  So, whether your family celebrates Chanukah or you just know someone else who does, enjoy these fun, peppy videos!

In 2010 the Maccabeats started it all with Candlelight.  This great version of Taio Cruz‘s Dynamite quickly became an internet sensation!

And this year there are a bunch of new Chanukah songs and videos!  Here’s a great one by the Fountainheads called Light up the Night:

Also, here’s an adorable video of 4th graders singing “Light the Candles” to Maroon 5′s “Moves Like Jagger!”

The final video — again by the Maccabeats — is a super-catchy version of Matsiyahu‘s Miracle:

Have fun listening!  (And sorry, alas, I have no tips for getting these songs or any other kid-friendly ones out of your head!)
