A Chanukah Story
This is a Chanukah story.
Once, when I was little,
I pretended to be sick
so I could skip going to school that day.
Because I was so excited for the first night of Chanukah.
I faked my sickness and I tricked my parents,
and I stayed home from school that day.
That evening we had dinner and then celebrated Chanukah
by lighting the candles and exchanging presents.
All I go was a lousy blanket.
No toy, no gadget, no cool item of the year.
Just a lousy blanket for my bed.
That is my Chanukah story.
