Besides the fact that Jesus was Jewish, Jews have a strong influence on the whole Christmas atmosphere in other ways. Take for example the music. A lot of those popular songs associated with the holiday are actually written by Jews. Buzzfeed put together their list of the top ten classic Christmas songs written by Jews.

1. White Christmas — Written by Irving Berlin

2. You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch — Music Composed by Albert Hague (Lyrics by Dr. Seuss)
