With a curry sauce of choice,
Some rice on the side,
And a pudding for the night.

And spend money on those “Steals”.

Dad wants a new TV,
Mum wants a quiet life,
So lets go hit the high street.

Don’t catch a winter bug,
Make your list and check it twice,
You want to buy something nice.

For another year,
The presents are open,
And so is the beer,
Now all that’s left,
Is to say,
365 days left,
Till the next Christmas Day.
