Last Night Of Hanukah

This is what we saw as the candles burnt low, reflected in the window, Christmas lights visible from across the street. We were all sitting in the living room, lights off, watching the candle flames. At least A and I were doing so. My kids played tug of war with a blanket accompanied by great hilarity until the last few minutes when I asked them to be quiet as the lights went out one by one, remaining in heart and memory for another year.
