Twas the Last Shopping Night Before Christmas...

Twas the last shopping night before Christmas and all through the stores,
All the shoppers were scurrying and buying in hords.

People were grouchy and credit cards were full,
Definite signs that it's time for the yule!

Ma had her egg nog and I, beer on tap,
We were exhausted, our energy sapped.

When out in the driveway we heard such a clatter,
We staggered to the window to see what was the matter!

Unexpected family arrived at our door,
More gifts!!  NO! No more!!!

We turned out the lights and hid under the table,
We should be hospitable but just were not able.

They kept hitting the doorbell, it rang and it rang.
Surely they will go away...DANG!

They turned and they got back into their car,
Oh please let them go far.

Then we exclaimed as they drove away in their Rover,
We should have been Jewish, heck Hanukkah is over!!!
