Hava Nagila, From Eastern Europe To American Comedy
"Allan Sherman sang 'Harvey and Sheila' about the Jewish exodus to the suburbs. The Simpsons went caroling and sang it to neighbors with the lyric 'Hava Nice Christmas.' Larry David downloaded it as a ring tone. Nowadays, you can buy a Harvey Nagila singing and dancing doll and even find the recipe to a Halvah-Nagila smoothie". The New York Times 10/28/12
