How good to celebrate both holidays
And double your enjoyment of the season,
Pleased to look ahead with double reason,
Pleased with memories that go both ways.
Years will give to them a deep, rich glaze.

How lucky to inherit both traditions --
One Christian and one Jewish -- and to know
Lovely rituals from long ago
In long-familiar, family-wrought renditions.
Days of winter are too short, but nights
Are filled with melodies and festive lights.
Year's end brings holidays you long will treasure,
Seasonal joys that give you lasting pleasure.
