Growing up Jewish, you don’t get the same amazing songs that surround the Christmas tree (probably because most good Christmas songs were written by fellow Jews). Jimmy Fallon realized the struggle of the Jewish people, and created a whole bunch of songs with fans to keep everyone warm around the menorah this year. Read more on College Candy…
