Happy Hanukkah, My Little Latke

So, it turns out that Woody Guthrie wrote Hanukkah songs. His second wife was Jewish and stuff and, well, Woody Guthrie wrote a lot of songs. This is great news to me, because I have little to no use for the Hanukkah tunes from Matisyahu and The Maccabeats."Hannukah Dance," on the other hand, is definitely putting me in the holiday spirit. As a wise friend pointed out to me, Irving Berlin wrote "White Christmas" so why shouldn't my favorite Hanukkah song be by Woody Guthrie?
