Film Vault Friday: Christmastime for the Jews

Since we’re heading into the final day of Chanukah, and this is the final Friday before Christmas, I thought it would be appropriate to dip back just to 2005 and Saturday Night Live’s fantastic claymation piece, Christmastime for the Jews. It’s one of those clips I watched when it aired and wanted to watch again immediately. So funny, so well-executed.

There’s an official version on Hulu, but because it’s America-only, here’s a slightly lower-quality embed that doesn’t discriminate! After the jump, due to autoplay.
