Twas the night before Christmas
and this family of four
had baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies
and were eyeing one more.
The Christmas Story marathon
played on the tv all night
and served as the backdrop for the
brother and sister to fight.
The brother finally collapsed
in a heap on the floor
when they heard the jingling
of bells outside of their door.
The Dad cracked the door
as the Mom felt fluish
and there sat Santa looking puzzled
"you know with Christmas story playing,
you don't sound Jewish".
The Dad pointed up to
the mezuzah on the door
and to the dreidl still spinning
from Chanukah on the floor.
They gave him a plate of soufganiyot
or jelly donuts to you
The mom wrapped a blanket tighter
did we mention she had the flu?
Then we heard Santa exclaim as
he drove out of sight
Never mind those cookies and milk
It's these donuts I like!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
