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?

2016 Christmas Countdown 18 : Christmas To Me


There are the Christmas tunes,
There is a turkey in the oven,
There’s a smile on the faces,
A laugh coming from the table,
There is the lights on the tree,
And lets not forget the company,
This is what Christmas means to me.

***
People all around the world feel as one,
All link arms together and thank everyone,
Remember the hardships of the past,
And the hardships to come,
But not focus of the hard times,
But look forward to the fun,
This is what I dream Christmas to be.

2016 Christmas Countdown 17 : Christmas Plans


There are snowmen,
With snow balls,
Rudolf calls,
And we deck the halls.
***
We shake hands,
Make Christmas Plans,
Sing Psalms,
And meet our grans,
***
While I write poetry,
We sing happily,
Smile profusely,
Living our Christmas plans.
