Dasher’s Double Duty

2018 Rock Star Santa contest ~ 2nd place/tie

Up on the rooftop, reindeers pause.

They’re patiently waiting for Dasher because,

He’s lighting eight candles to mark the last night

Of Chanukah wonder before he takes flight.


Yes, Dasher P. Greenberg is Jewish, which means

He doesn’t do Christmas or keep its routines.

But on Christmas Eve, when the sleigh leaves each home,

He calls, “Happy Christmas! To all a SHALOM!”
