I came from Delhi, India.

I live in Iowa now.

I love TV and shopping malls.

I love the yummy chow.

I have a little problem still,

though living here is great.

I've tried to learn the holidays,

but cannot keep them straight.

Last year on Independence Day,

I joined the celebration.

I gave my kids their colored eggs,

in tribute to our nation.

So then there came this Labor Day.

The country took a rest.

I gave my neighbors candy hearts,

and wished them all the best.

Thanksgiving Day was chilly,

but we made a happy scene.

We sang a lot of Irish songs

and dressed in emerald green.

There came a storm on Christmas Day,

especially ice and sleet.

We kept the joyous spirit

as we went for trick or treat.

I messed up all the holidays,

and missed them, day and night.

Tomorrow comes another one.

I know I'll get it right.

On the first of January,

they put on quite a show.

I think they call it Halloween.

To all a HO, HO, HO!
