Parody Song Title:

"Please Come Home for Christmas......or Chanukah"

Parody Written by:

Sharon 'Parodiva' Krebs

The Lyrics

This song is about the "December Dilemma", which many intermarried Jewish-Christian couples and families are faced with every year—whether to celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, or both, and the possible consequences that this dilemma may bring. Please note that this song is based on a true story of a Jewish man who married a Catholic woman who converted to Judaism before their marriage, but when their first holiday season together rolled around, she was very upset when her husband forbade her to have even a little Christmas tree in the house. This incident lead to their eventual breakup. Please note further that this situation does not always result in marital breakup, but there is usually some conflict which occurs with two spouses coming from two different religious backgrounds. In most of these cases, a positive compromise is made. Enjoy my satire!
Christmas trees glimmering,
Menorahs lit;
Not with my baby;
She had a fit.
I am a Jew,
My girl's a "goy".
My holidays are without joy.

I told her I want no Christmas tree,
She said, "Screw you!"
Then she left me!
Please come home for Christmas,
Please come home for Christmas,
If not for Christmas,
Then for Chanukah!

Friends and relations
Started "Oy vayin'"
As soon as they learned of our love,
But they accepted our differences,
But now I pray
You'll be with me for Yom Tov.*

So, please return for the holidays.
Christmas, Chanukah,
Whichever way.
There'll be holiday joy in every way;
That joy will be there not one,
But eight days!

Instrumental interlude.

Ooh, you'll bring holiday joy in every way,
Not just December,
But all of our days!
*Yom Tov is the Hebrew term for a Jewish festival.
