“Countdown To Christmas” Limericks

Being Jewish and raising my daughter in a Jewish home, Christmas was just a “season” to us. But gift giving was part of the season and in many of the years, Hanukkah and Christmas overlapped. One of my fondest memories is waiting in line at a Toys R Us with Helene (who is arguably one of the world’s biggest Scroogettes – “don’t mention it”) so we could get Margot a Cabbage Patch Kid. She was so excited when she opened that present.

Santa’s making his final preparation
For his annual trip to every nation.
Delivering toys
To believing girls and boys
Requires a serious elf operation.

When it’s time to hit the road,
It takes a sleigh that can handle a load
And a reindeer team
That can fly a jet stream
And land on the roof of every abode.
