on the first day of hanukkah
my true duck will send to me
a round trip ticket to fly for free
join him at home in his palm tree
.

my true love will explain to me
how thanksgiving and chanukkah can be on the same day you see
and two lovely camels to wrap gifts and saute ghee
yes a big help to me

on the third day of hannukkah
my true love will cook for me
three somethings that contain no all er gy
no wheat no sugar, no eggs or soy & they’re glu ten free
they also should come in rhymes of three
.
on the fourth day of chanukkah
my true love bakes for me
four black and white cookies in the state of new jer sey

all i want for hanukkah is olivia pope

it’s that time of year.well, no  it’s a different time, every year.you have to look at the jewish calendar or an american calendar and subtract a day.only four more shopping days or  if you are reformed five more shopping days.so hard to find a good parking place.the lines at the mall are unbelieveable.the hanukkah decorations are beautiful,if you can find any decorations. macy’s has so many dreidel ornaments to hang on your tree, but you don’t have a tree. unless… you are married to someone who is christian.there must be a lot of interfaith marriages.why else would macy’s have so many different hanukkah, chridtmas tree ornaments.bloomingdales always has chocolate covered apples with royal blue ribbons. i like to decorate with these, because i haven’t seen any new hanukkah decorations ,since 1st  grade. godiva likes to wrap candy boxes in blue ribbon also. that magically turns them into chanukkah gifts.

you watch for all of the channukkah shows on food tv ,instead of the normal brisket and potato latkees… they had thanksgving dinners  almost 24/7 for a week, but all you can find are shows about pork loins and crab bisque.i guess it’s a kosher crab from myrtle beach;the crab who tried to eat me.oh well , maybe the chefs are reformed, also.life in america is easier if you are reformed.

it’s almost time to watch the many  hanukah movies and figure out where to hide the presents.my favorite holiday movie is Mixed Nuts ,where adam sandler sings his hanukkah song and ,and ….are there any other holday movies?someone invite larry david to dinner and make a new chanukah movie, and a new song, also .i only know three: adam sandler’s song , dreidel, dreidel ,dreidel and on the first day of hanukkah, my true love gave to me; a crisis manager named olivia pope.
