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.

Without the friends and family,
And of course to me that includes you,
Thank you for reading, Merry Christmas to you,

And enjoy your day,

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.

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

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 16 : Santa Claus


Santa Claus even if not here,
Brings joy to kids,
Every Year,
***
With his reindeer and sled,
And shiny bald head,
He comes out each year,

In supermarkets and stalls,
And even school halls,
His sits and waits this year,
***
He’ll soon be on his way,
After stalking his sleigh,
And Christmas Eve is here.

2016 Christmas Countdown 15 : Ten Days To Go


Ten days to go,
And by now you all know,
Christmas is coming close,
And so is the snow,
In comes the cold,
Out comes the coal,
As the cold takes its toll.
***
Thermoses are filled,
Drinks are no longer chilled,
And the garden no longer has a rose,
But we wait in delight,
For that one starry night,
With only ten days to go.
