Ho Ho Ho... :)..It's that time of year

Ho Ho Ho it’s that time of year
lots of laughter,fun and cheer
whether in the snow or the sun
“Tis the season to have some fun

Trees of green or silver if you wish
Mistletoe hanging…give someone a kiss
Baubles and tinsel decorate our tree
hope there’s a gift for little old me…
An angel or star we place on top
gifts for Dear Old Nanna and of course Pop

We can do this …we really can
stuff the turkey and bake the ham
Ham, pork and turkey to our taste
Oh Dear Lord don’t forget to baste!!!

Make the pudding and wrap it in a cloth
Hurry up now ..no time to be a sloth
Brandied sauce for your pleasure
Might just have a “wee little measure”

Champagne chilling, got to give it time
decorating the table …a pleasure of mine
work out the seating for the guests
“Would you mind moving?”…. hate to be a pest

Wrap up the gifts and tag the lot
under the tree is not a safe spot
Family call in for a “shake and a feel”
every now and then the paper does peel
big gifts, small gifts they all mean the same
Oh dear me..there’s one I didn’t name!!!

Knock,knock,knock who’s that at the door
even more guests than I had before
No space left on any of the chairs
Sit on the floor….no one really cares

sit down now and enjoy some lunch
famly and friends are a really great bunch
pass the wine if you might
Not the Red I prefer White…
Aunts and Uncles, girls and boys
they all seem to love their new toys

Mealtime is over, the place is a mess
smiles all round …there is no stress
food that’s eaten is not for the meek
we’ll be eating leftovers for a whole week
Waving goodbye to the last of the crew
I could use a nap…don’t know about you!!

The meaning of Christmas is really quite clear
be thankful for those we hold close and so dear
I do hope you find this Christmas is a pleasure
Take time out with the loved ones we treasure

Merry Christmas to you and yours
love from Red :)
