Winter isn’t winter,
Without a nice hot drink,
A large vat of something,
Sweet and soothing,
Topped off with mint,
And mallows too,
To keep you warm,
From your hat to your shoes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Every so often,
We just need to pause,
Think of others,
As we think of ourselves.
Everyone is someone,
A someone with dreams,
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.
