Isn't it nice to celebrate twice --
Christmas and Hanukkah?
To follow the ways of both holidays,
Lucky to be who you are?

On each of eight nights a candle to light,
Till all of them are aglow,
A moment of love in memory of
A light that was lit long ago.

And then there's a tree to trim lovingly,
And presents beneath it to leave,
An evergreen tree for a life that will be
Eternal, at least some believe.

So celebrate twice 'mid the cold rain and ice
Two holidays often apart.
But put together, despite the harsh weather,
They bring twice the warmth to the heart.
