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.

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.

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.

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?

And decorating halls,
For the holidays time.

And of the times,
Let’s hope it never ends.

Sing sweet melodies of all the fun,
That this year brung,
Just because we can.

2016 Christmas Countdown 3: Jack Frost


There’s a nip in the air,
And some ice over there,
The windows are foggy,
And the roads are all slippy,
I guess you could say,
Jack Frost has been busy,
***
He’s been making the cold,
And you never know,
In the night,
It might snow,
So wrap up warm,
when you go out,
All together now,
“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”

2016 Christmas Countdown 2 – Riddle Me This


What am I in the morning,
But not in the night,
I make the cocks crow,
And the first morning light,
I am only once a day,
Every day of the year,
I get earlier in the summer,
Later in the fall,
And I am well known,
For showing the new day to all.
