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 12 : Halfway There


We’re halfway there,
Trees have been decorated,
Hats and scarfs out for a while,
The new year feels closer,
Than at any time,
Parties have been planned,
And gift preparation is in full swing,
Christmas carols are being sung,
The season has well and truly begun.

2016 Christmas Countdown 11 : Happy Holidays


Happy holidays,
One and all,
Let the joy ring out,
Leave the hate behind,
Yesterday is history,
Look to tomorrow.
***
Remember this is the season,
Everyone should smile,
Extend the hand of friendship,
For you are only here for a short while.

2016 Christmas Countdown 10 : International Human Rights Day


Every so often,
We just need to pause,
Think of others,
As we think of ourselves.
***
Everyone is someone,
A someone with dreams,
With aspirations,
And importantly with feelings.
***
Today gives us chance,
To reflect on those,
Who don’t have what they need,
And get what they don’t deserve.
***
This year for International Human Rights day,
Spread some cheer,
And share a smile,
A little thing could make a big difference.

2016 Christmas Countdown 9 : Cold Christmas Riddle


I can be made,
And unmade,
I can be one among many,
Or grouped to form something>
***
Some use me,
As a weapon,
In the games they play.
***
With a shovel,
And someone who knows,
I make a dome,
For Eskimos.
***
With some cole,
A scarf, a hat,
And some magic,
I form a friend.
***
What am I?
