12. Christmas Round The World


The Aussies have their barbecues,
The Eskimos build their igloos,
The Scots grab their sleds,
And the bears go to bed.
***
Each corner of the earth,
Has it’s own ways to go,
Whether that’s sunny,
Or temperatures subzero.
***
One thing we all share,
Is spreading cheer,
And sharing what we have,
With those who do not.

6. Decorate That Tree


Get the boxes out,
Blow off the dust,
Clean out the lites,
Buff the tinsel up,
Open the tree,
Argue about baubles,
And who does the fairy,
Or is it a star,
Who give a care,
By the end of today,
Let’s just have one up anyway.

1. The First Chocolate


It’s that first crisp morning,
When you sneak out of bed,
Head down the stairs,
Grab your calendar,
And hear that door tear,
underneath is that sweetest of treats,
The first seasons chocolate,
There for you to eat.

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.

It’s Hanukkah,
And I know what I wanna da’

It’s a time for enlightenment.

We have all heard it,
And so I raise this to everyone,
Have a happy Hanukkah.
