Don't turn out on Christmas Eve your lights too soon. I believe your shadow falling on the blind will be the best gift I could find,

the gift - a summer sun of light to fill, to warm my winter night.

Don't turn off my dreaming please flicking off lights on Christmas Eve. Translated from the Armenian by Diana Der Hovanessian
