For the holiday of lights
there were many,
It did rain-finally-but not much; there was plenty of thick fog the morning after.
There were celebrations
The Old City was busy day and night.
There were dreydels to spin
and Chaunkah gelt, chocolate coins to win.
The crowds and signs of the holiday were everywhere, even the buses said “Happy Chanukah”.
Tastes of Chanukah have come a long way, with exotic new varieties of suffganiot
As the Chanukah season comes to an end, thousands of visitors are going home.
After eight days celebrating the holiday of oil, many people are not sad, but very happy…
as the strawberry season has begun.
