    TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS # 19

    Twas the night before Christmas
    And all thru the gaff
    There were cheap tacky decs
    That looked really Naff

    WRAPPING UP CHRISTMAS

    We all remember that moment as kids,
    That sudden realization that makes you sad
    When you notice Santa Claus has used
    The same wrapping paper as mum and dad

    LEAST FAVORITE REINDEER

    The Dinosaurs least favorite reindeer
    Of all the ones they’ve met,
    Isn’t that show off Red Nosed Rudolf
    The one they hate is Comet

    I ALWAYS MAKE THE EFFORT TO GO HOME

    I always make the effort to go home
    Though it fills me with dread to be clear
    Two days of unwelcome parenting advice
    From relatives I see once or twice a year

    WHEN WE SIT DOWN TO CHRISTMAS DINNER

    When we sit down to Christmas dinner
    I’m relieved and feel incredibly grateful
    Because annoying relatives speak less
    During the meal as their mouths are full

    PEOPLE TRAVEL CONSIDERABLE DISTANCES

    People travel considerable distances
    To be with those they hold dear
    Because these are the special people
    They only see once or twice a year
    But the realization that once or twice
    Was way too much soon became clear

    MUM WAS DETERMINED

    This year, Mum was determined, for the first time,
    To have the happy time the family had lacked
    So, when she was preparing the bird for the oven
    She stuffed the Turkey with sage, onion and Prozac!

    WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS TO ME

    Christmas isn't about having the biggest tree
    Or having the most Christmas lights on view
    Nor is it all the treats or gifts beneath the tree
    It's about who you share it with and that’s you

    WHAT’S TOP OF YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST?

    “What’s top of your Christmas list?”
    I was asked right out of the blue
    “The loveliest girl ever” I replied
    And on Christmas Eve I met you

    TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS # 20

    Twas the night before Christmas
    And all thru the apartment
    Not a creature was stirring
    As they were all quite content

    All good, but the 2nd from last was my personal favorite.
