2016 Christmas Countdown 25 : Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas one and all,
Welcome to the new day,
Lets us toast to the turkey,
And give thanks for the gifts.
***
Lets give thanks to the people who cooked the meal,
And let us not forget the dishes.
We will all be tired come tonight,
So lets enjoy the day while its light.
***
Christmas wouldn’t be christmas,
Without the friends and family,
And of course to me that includes you,
Thank you for reading, Merry Christmas to you,
***
Now get back to your Christmas,
And enjoy your day,
Join me tomorrow,
Until New Years Day.

2016 Christmas Countdown 24 : Christmas Eve


Come all ye faithful,
Have a drink and laugh with us,
Right now is the night,
In comes the cheers,
So tomorrow will bring the joy,
Tots with toys full of noise,
Mothers and fathers searching for batteries,
And not a soul should feel sad,
Singers of carols will fill the air.
***
Everyone everywhere,
Ventures out to the family houses,
Each to greet and wish a merry christmas.

2016 Christmas Countdown 23 : Christmas Week


So here we are,
It’s that week,
Christmas is near,
And the weather is bleak.

But although the weather is bleak,
And there is no snow on the ground,
Let’s all remember the family we have,
And give a thought to those around.

Forget family feuds,
And let the past go,
Remember family are family,
No matter what they do.

 

2016 Christmas Countdown 22 : Here’s To Christmas


Here’s to the tree,
Standing so proudly,
Decorated in all the fineries,
***
Here’s to the gifts,
All stacked neatly,
Just waiting for Sunday,
***
Here’s to the parents,
Running off their feet,
Finding gifts for the kids,
***
And here’s to the kids,
All excited and cheery,
Waiting for Santa’s visit.

2016 Christmas Countdown 21: Solstice


The solstice marks the darkest day,
And today, of the darkest year,
Lets hold a hope,
Next year will be better,
But don’t bet on it.

2016 Christmas Countdown 20 : Happy Hanukkah


It’s Hanukkah,
And I know what I wanna da’
It’s a time for remembrance,
It’s a time for enlightenment.
***
Even if you don’t observe it,
We have all heard it,
And so I raise this to everyone,
Have a happy Hanukkah.

2016 Christmas Countdown 19 : Christmas Riddle 3


Someone in your chimney,
After the kids have gone to bed,
Night comes and he arrives,
While the kids rest their heads,
***
He likes milk,
And warm cookies,
Sat by the fire,
While he leaves goodies by the tree,
For the kids to admire,
So who is he?
