The Chanukah lamp was kindled, shedding its faint light in the brilliantly lit sitting-room. It was a happy occasion for father to spend half an hour in the company of his children, playing the Chanukah dreidle. There was an air of festivity in the house, but so engrossed were the players in the game that the poor Chanukah light was all but forgotten.
The excitement grew as the dreidle spun round and fell, now with the shin up, calling for a 'put,' now with the gimmel up, bringing a 'take all' to the happy winner.

Little Chaim grew tired of the game and went up to look at the fascinating Chanukah light. He drew up a chair and sat down, gazing at the little flame with his eager blue eyes.

The tiny flame flickered and made a curtsy. "Good Chanukah!" the Chanukah Light said.

Little Chaim was so startled that he could only nod in acknowledgment. "I didn't know Chanukah Lights could talk," he said.

"Oh yes, Chanukah Lights can talk, and can tell wonderful stories," the little flame replied. "Few children, I am sorry to say, know it. But I am glad you came to look me up. I was beginning to feel neglected. After all, I come but once a year, together with my seven little sisters, and surely we deserve some attention and hospitality."

"But we mustn't make any practical use of your light," Chaim said in self defense. "You are just to be looked at and pondered on!"

"I am glad you know that. But that is exactly the reason why you should sit next to me and keep me company, and listen to my story. I have such a wonderful story to tell you. Do you want to hear it?"

"I certainly do," little Chaim said expectantly.
