It's that time of year again, folks. Temperatures are dropping, oil is frying, and adorkable Jews are singing about Maccabees and dreidels.

Since 2010, Jewish A capella groups and celebrities have been releasing viral holiday parodies and spoofs, most notably around Hanukkah time.  

This year is no different.

We've collected our favorite tunes from 2015 to get you in the spirit of the upcoming holiday on Sunday.

"Holiday Mashup" Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones

That time when Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones sang an original holiday mashup on "The Tonight Show" parodying Taylor Swift, Drake, and Rihanna.

Sure, the video includes most of this season's holidays (including Black Friday – who knew? – and excluding Kwanzaa), but we especially love the Hanukkah shutout to the tune of The Weekend's "Can't Feel My Face" – I guess that's cool, right?

"Latke Recipe," The Maccabeats

These fellas never let us down. As the progenitors of viral Hanukkah videos, they continue to wow the Jewish and digital worlds with their parody of Walk the Moon's "Shut up and Dance with Me."

And we love the reappearance of Noey Jacobson in the astronaut suit. Stay classy, Macs.

"A One Direction Hanukkah" - epic parody mashup!

Old favorites like A.K.A Pella and new kids on the block like the Y-Studs, join together for this video, with a special contribution from Cosmopolitan acclaimed group, Six13.

We really love this collaboration parody, spearheaded by Manhattan musician and dentist Erez Cohen. If you're into boy bands and ugly holiday, *ahem*, Hanukkah sweaters and onesies, you will too.

"The Hanukkah Song Part 4" Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler is the gift that just keeps giving. At the Judd Apatow Comedy Show in San Diego California, he debuted a 4th installation of his "Hanukkah Song," which he initially performed on "Saturday Night Live" in 1994 (wow, we feel old).

With new characters like JoGoLev and Scarlett Johanson, "talk about a Kosher crush," Sandler hits on the all too familiar themes of being a Jew during the Christmas season.

Put on your yarmulke, it's time for Hanukkah.

"Watch Me (Spin/Drey Drey)," Six13

We. Love. This.

From the opening "Shalom" (to the tune of Adele's "Hello") to the janitor jamming along, this parody of Silento's "Watch Me" and Drake's "Hotline Bling" is the perfect beat to pump us up for the upcoming holiday.

Six13, Watch Me

Jacob Spadaro looks like he's perfectly advertising for Movember– you can't miss him – and Mordy Weinstein is dressed up as hip hop sensation Drake. We didn’t think they could top last year's Taylor Swift parody, but this might well give it a run for its gelt.

It seems our ancestors went through persecution so we could watch Six13 spin and drey drey.
