Come and trim my Christmas tree,
With some decorations bought at Tiffany’s,
I really do believe in you,
Let’s see if you believe in me
Last night was the last night of Hanukkah—I saw these children’s cards in the synagogue today! I hope your holiday celebrations were wonderful!
City Sidewalks, or small towns on dark and chilly nights…all dressed in their holiday best…. Did you go as a child ‘downtown’? to see the lights? As childhood memories usually go, I have this mash-up memory of a subway train ride, packed like sardines, on our way to see Santa at Macy’s Herald Square that always comes back when on the train and a train in the other direction speeds by—disjointed, rushing people and lights and the sound of the brakes on the rail.
Happy birthday to my cousin Thom and my son-in-law Matthew!
