lots of friends ~ giving Presents

but who wraps them all ?

MOTHER CHRISTMAS of course ~ and

she grooms and feeds the REINDEER !



his picture on thousands of

Christmas Cards ~ where is

MOTHER CHRISTMAS ?  In wash room

washing all the Christmas Sacks !



job done ~ loves Christmas Dinner 

Turkey ~ Christmas pud

brandy sauce ~ cheese & coffee !  

Who cooks it ?  MOTHER CHRISTMAS !


Thanks for visiting ~ commnets welcome ~ BRIAN XOX


Behind every Great Man ~ there is always an even

Greater Woman and Father Christmas is no exception

Father Christmas has already appeared in the Grottos

on the Christmas Cards and Stamps and in very early

Nativity Plays ~ He's everywhere !  BUT ~ where is

Mother Christmas ?  Always "behind the scenes" in

the packing shed supervising supervising the Elves

while her Husband travels the World ~ enjoying a

sherry and a cookie at millions of houses ! LADIES

please stand up for MOTHER CHRISTMAS and all

MOTHERS at Christmas ~

      Thank you BRIANSODES for your wonderful poem on Xmas.

      A very different take on Xmas.

      You are right, behind every man is a very strong woman!

      Keep writing.

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        Good Evening FINE ~ Thanks for your generous comment ! In the UK ~ as you know ~ we have a Lady Queen and a Lady PM ~ say no more ! Seasonal Hugs ~ BRIAN (UK)

      • Michael Edwards

        Ah you've put me in the spirit - err whisky of course - fine write Brian.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Well MICHAEL ~ The UK shops are already bursting with Christmas Fare & Gear ~ including some nice Single Malts for Hogmanay ! Yours BRIAN

          Thats right--behind every great man....I like that part!! LOL I do all the xmas shopping and baking. And the donating. Great poem, Brian! Thanks for the shout out at the end to all the mothers at christmas! It can get hectic but it's worth it! Thanks for the Christmas write! (one more week til thanksgiving!) Sisterly hugs-Christina

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks CHRISTINA ~ pleased you agree ! I have stayed in US Homes in the period leading up to THANKSGIVING (and CHRISTMAS !) and the Mothers toil from 7 am until midnight to enable their beloved Family ~ to Eat ~ Drink and Be Merry ~ It is the same in the UK and I guess worldwide ~ that is why we love & cherish you so much ! In the UK the Husbands generally make the Coffee ~ serve the Brandy and then go to sleep while the Ladies clear up & wash up ! Seasonal Hugs ~ Brother BRIAN

            I always thought the elves did all the work.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              They do some of it ANDY ~ but you (and I) both know what ELVES (and Fairies) are like if left to their own devices ! They need strict supervision and that is the role of MA CHRISTMAS ! Yours BRIAN

            • myself and me

              Thank you Briansodes for such a lovely poem for MOTHER CHRISTMAS.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Thanks M & M ~ I like to highlight the part played by Ladies (such as the Blessed Virgin Mary) and the unsung Mother Christmas in the Christmas Story. Father Christmas (St Nicholas) was at the Council of Nicea 425 (where the Deity of Christ was confirmed) while the unsung Mrs Nicholas was at home looking after their Children ! It is ever thus ~ Yours as ever BRIAN

            • Fay Slimm.

              Of course a Mother warrants attention especially at Christmas and this lovely mother most of all. I love the picture of a happy yuletide man with a strong woman beside him good fun poem with a serious message dear Brian.

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                I knew you would understand FAY ~ I my experience at least 90% of the Preparation & Presentation of Christmas is down to the Ladies ~ most of all the MOTHERS. I'm going to my Mum's for Christmas Dinner ~ where else would I go ! Yours as ever BRIAN

              • orchidee

                A fine write Brian. Mother Christmas -she knows these things!

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks STEVE ~ in my House Mama Christmas always ruled OK ~ Ladies slave while Men slaver ! Yours BRIAN

              • FredPeyer

                It's about time somebody puts 'Mother Christmas' into the flood lights. Well done!

                • FredPeyer

                  Santi, somebody once told me that God is a woman, and SHE is black!
