Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Baby Jesus
We're not really religious people. Or, to rephrase using the same words, we're really not religious people. We do, however, think that the kids should have some understanding of the meaning of the holidays. Which is why, after unwrapping the Baby Jesus and setting up the nativity scene by the tree, we lit the appropriate number of candles on the menorah.
Owen lit them then Beth asked him if he wanted to sing a Hanukkah song. He declined exclaiming No, daddy should sing a song. I was flustered and unprepared. But I found inspiration in the Fab Four.
Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone...Yahweh!
And then Owen blew out the candles on the menorah as though it was a cake.
So, apparently our holiday traditions now resemble a Beatles tribute band at a birthday party.Posted by Chris at December 12, 2012 7:30 AM
