Happy Hanukkah!... and a nice little friend to celebrate it with!...

Hello, Friends! I want to wish you all a very Happy Hanukkah! ....You know, folks, the Coca Cola people marketed Santa Claus starting in 1931 during the height of the Depression.... but who was around to celebrate the wonderful festival of Hanukkah?..."The Festival Of Lights"!..... eventually, some nice people in Hollywood thought up a charming character to match Santa! .....the outfit I'm wearing in this photo is the famous folk costume of "Gilda The Gelt-Girl" who comes around to nice Jewish households during Hanukkah; NOT down the chimney (for Heaven's sake!) where she could get filthy and maybe tear something! NO! She comes through an unlocked sliding glass door on the lanai or through an attached garage, etc. On the first night, she looks for good girls and boys and leaves them delicious GELT or envelopes of cash that they can put towards a nice nose job or a convertible....and for bad children she leaves GUILT, (which isn't very effective with this new entitled generation of kids, is it?!) Please don't ever leave her plates of cookies like you do for Santa! She's watching her waistline!...but she has been known to "lift" a lovely little tchotchke off a side table or from Grandma's purse....so clean up any clutter you don't want pawed through! By the way, that's her magical "Gelt Pocket" on her apron where she keeps her chocolate treats, and she's carrying her enchanted "Oy Veys Mirror" through which she can see all the good and bad little children! (Those bastards at Romper Room stole her "magic-mirror" idea back in the 1950s, and she hasn't collected ONE DAMN CENT in royalties!) Stay tuned here on my Facebook page for all the silly stories for a Happy Holiday! And remember that Mummie loves you very much if you've been good.... (and ESPECIALLY if you've been very BAD!) Love and Xoxoxox, Sybil. (ps. Don't worry!! Mummie's nice little Dreidl Dress is flame retardant! ...just in case I back into a menorah! I HAVE been known to do just that skulking around the house sometimes! ...and Santa and I have a big laugh too about what trouble we've gotten into rifling through people's stuff!).....
