Here we have three holidays,
All three in a row,
Perhaps like three bright songbirds
Perched upon the snow,
Yearly perched just so!
Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year's Day
Open up in song,
Lighting winter's darkest hours
In trills both sweet and strong,
Delighting children everywhere
As these three birds the season share,
Yielding joys beyond compare.
So come! Let's sing along!
