Christmas

Christmas baubles and fairy lights,

Kisses under the mistletoe and snowball fights,

Relatives gather round houses that haven't been seen in ages,

A mother looks for gifts, turning the Argos catalogue pages,

Carol singers surround the streets spreading festive cheer,

Santa Claus is on a mission worldwide, delivering parcels with his reindeer,

Children meet their favourite fairy-tale characters on the pantomime stage.

Shoppers go mad in Oxford Street, buying the latest app that's all the rage.

The Queen's latest speech calls for national unity and reconciliation,

The school nativity play celebrates the birth of Jesus with great jubilation.

Everyone is high - spirited as the party drinks and the champagne flows,

Tis the season of goodwill and celebration where anything goes.
