A "Shake It Off" Parody for Hanukkah

(Video Link)

Tuesday is the first day of Hanukkah, an 8-day Jewish holiday celebrating a miraculous event during the Maccabean Revolt. To mark the occasion, the musical group Six13 (warning: auto-play video) offers this lively parody of Taylor Swift's song "Shake It Off," which is embedded below.

The song helpfully summarizes the traditions and origins of the holiday in its lyrics. Here's a sample:

Back in 160 B.C.E.
Lived Judah Maccabee
His army was so weak
But they still beat the Greeks

Supply of oil wasn't great
But a miracle took place
It burned for 8 whole days
It burned for 8 whole days
