Handsel & Auspicate

There was a man named Edsel,
Who gave his friend a handsel

Saying, With you I want to auspicate —
This year, 19, the ending of all dates!

—A slice of cheese and a pretzel!

Note:
Handsel: a gift made as a token of good wishes or luck especially at the beginning of a new year
Auspicate: to initiate with ceremonies calculated to ensure good luck
