Adam Sandler Reveals What His Kids Think Of ‘The Chanukah Song’ & Explains How It Came To Be His Hit

Adam Sandler is a staple of the holiday season and he’s opening up to Access Hollywood about being called the “Mariah Carey of Hanukkah,” for his “SNL” hit song, “The Chanukah Song.” “Mariah Carey is for all of us,” he said. “But, man, I’m happy to be a part of Hanukkah that was a good time of life to be associated with the song and the holidays. Very proud of that.” He also joked that he sings the song to himself alone in his basement. “If it comes on the radio and I hear it, I get excited,” he said before sharing that his two daughters are proud of it too. Adam said the song was originally written when Roseanne Barr was hosting “Saturday Night Live” but she suggested he be the one to perform it. During the interview Adam also opened up about what it’s like working with his family on his latest animated film, “Leo.” The comedian’s new project features his wife, Jackie Sandler, and their daughters, Sunny and Sadie Sandler. “They still stare at me like ‘what’s he mad at?'” he joked to Access Hollywood about having them at work with him.
