Just in time for the big kickoff to to Hanukkah this important question appears like holiday head trauma. Why is Matisyahu on ice skates dressed as Mr. Claus and locked in a Narnia birdcage with another dude named Matisyahu and also the Nutcracker? Cause its the new best holiday song since Tom Lehrer spent Hanukkah in Santa Monica, of course! No really, it's funny. It's a Miracle!
