Chanukah Festival Overture Chanukah Chanukah, Chanukah Chag yafeh kol kach Or chaviv, mi-saviv Gil l’yeled rach. Chanukah, Chanukah Sivivon, sov, sov Sov, sov, sov! Sov, sov, sov! Mah nayim vi-tov. Chanukah, Chanukah Candles growing bright Chanukah, Chanukah Joy-ous-ness each night. Chanukah, Chanukah What a holiday! Time to dance, time to laugh Time to sing and play. Dreidel I have a little Dreidel. I made it out of clay, And when it’s dry and ready, Then Dreidel I will play. Dreidel, Dreidel, Driedel, It loves to whirl and spin. And when it gets all tired, It drops and then I win!

Mi Y’Mallel Mi y’mallel g’vurot Yisraeil otan mi yimneh Hein b’chol dor yakum hagibor goeil Haam. Mi y’mallel g’vurot Yisraeil otan mi yimneh Hein b’chol dor yakum hagibor goeil Haam. Ah, at this time of year in days of yore. Macabees the Temple did restore And today our people as we dreamed Will arise, unite and be redeemed. Ma’oz Tzur Rock of Ages, let our song. Praise your saving power. You, amid the raging foes, Was our sheltering tower. Furiously, they assailed us. But Your arm availed us. And Your word broke their sword, When our own strength failed us. And Your word broke their sword, When our own strength failed us. Reprise Chanukah, Chanukah Chag yafeh kol kach Or chaviv, mi-saviv Gil l’yeled rach. Chanukah, Chanukah Sivivon, sov, sov Sov, sov, sov! Sov, sov, sov! Mah nayim vi-tov.

Christmas Sing Along Deck the Halls 1. Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la! 'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la! Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la la la la la la! Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la la la la!

2. See the blazing yule before us, Fa la la la la la la la! Strike the harp and join the chorus, Fa la la la la la la la! Follow me in merry measure, Fa la la la la la la la! While I tell of Yuletide treasure, Fa la la la la la la la!

3. Fast away the old year passes, Fa la la la la la la la! Hail the new, ye lads and lasses, Fa la la la la la la la! Sing we joyous all together! Fa la la la la la la la! Heedless of the wind and weather, Fa la la la la la la la!


Joy to the world 1. Joy to the world! The Lord is come. Let earth receive her King Let every heart Prepare Him room And heaven and nature sing And heaven and nature sing And heaven and heaven and nature sing

2. Joy to the world, the Savior reigns Let men their songs employ While fields and floods Rocks, hills and plains Repeat the sounding joy Repeat the sounding joy Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy

Jingle Bells 1. Dashing through the snow On a one horse open sleigh O'er the fields we go, Laughing all the way Bells on bob tail ring, making spirits bright What fun it is to laugh and sing A sleighing song tonight

2. A day or two ago, I thought I'd take a ride, And soon Miss Fanny Bright Was seated by my side; The horse was lean and lank Misfortune seemed his lot We got into a drifted bank, And then we got upsot.

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh

Hark the Herald Angels Sing 1. Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King!" Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled Joyful, all ye nations, rise, Join the triumph of the skies; With th' angelic host proclaim, "Christ is born in Bethlehem." Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King!"

2. Christ, by highest heav'n adored: Christ, the everlasting Lord; Late in time behold him come, Offspring of the favored one. Veil'd in flesh, the Godhead see; Hail, th'incarnate Deity: Pleased, as man, with men to dwell, Jesus, our Emmanuel! Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King!"

We Wish You A Merry Christmas 1. We wish you a merry Christmas (3) And a happy New Year Glad tidings we bring To you and your kin Glad tidings for Christmas And a happy New Year

2. We want some milk and cookies (x3) Please bring it right here Glad tidings we bring To you and your kin Glad tidings for Christmas And a happy New Year

3. We won't go until we get some (x3) So bring it out here Glad tidings we bring To you and your kin Glad tidings for Christmas And a happy New Year
