2019 New Year Countdown 2: Boxing Day Rush


Quick grab your coat,
We don’t want to miss the deals,
We need to get to town,
And spend money on those “Steals”.
***
The kids have Christmas money,
Dad wants a new TV,
Mum wants a quiet life,
So lets go hit the high street.
***
Wrap up warm and snug,
Don’t catch a winter bug,
Make your list and check it twice,
You want to buy something nice.

2019 Christmas Countdown 26: Christmas Countdown 2020


It’s come and gone,
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.

2019 New Year Countdown 1: Onward To New Year


Now that the Turkey is done,
And the rum is run,
And Christmas draws to a close.

Thoughts turn to the year,
That the close is so near,
And the journey that is to come.

The end of a decade,
The start of a new one,
The possibilities that are to come.

So have another glass,
And toast to the past,
And watch the rest of the year pass.

As you sit warm,
In your PJs,
Eyeing up your presents.

Have a happy Christmas,
And spread the love,
At this time of sharing.

We all love a good gift,
Or hidden surprise,
And treat under the tree.

So celebrate everyone,
Show your heart,
And hug your family.
***
Merry Christmas to you,
From the PeskyPoet.

2019 Christmas Countdown 24: Get Excited


There are traditions to uphold,
And new ones to make,
A Christmas tea to be had,
And cakes to be baked,
Movies to watch,
And board games to be played,
And that one tradition,
We all insist has just been made.
***
Bit after the excitement,
It’s time to sleep,
Before he sees you,
When he creeps,
And drops down the chimney,
With sooty foot,
To leave the presents,
Where the tree is stood.
***
Sleep well in the thought,
That Santa will come,
His gifts will bring joy,
To everyone,
And make sure to leave,
One thing out for he,
A drink of milk or maybe some brandy.

2019 Christmas Countdown 23: Reindeer


Right around the corner,
Each child is wearing,
In will come Santa Clause,
No sound he will be making,
Down on the roof,
Each house he will visit,
Ever quiet and still,
Reindeer silent on hoof.

2019 Christmas Countdown 22: Yule Log

May the Yuletide bring something new.
Keep the Yule log burning in the harth,
And a pound of love in your heart.
Let all and sunder know you care,
And that you will always be there.
So happy Yuletide to you and yours,
Wrap up warm and don’t let christmas pass in a blur.
