Twelve Days of Christmas

On the First Day of Christmas,

Our family bought a tree

And decorated it with tinsel and garland,

Placing our ornaments, oh so carefully.

 

On the Second Day of Christmas,

The plaza sold to me,

Peppermint mochas from Starbucks,

To get me through my spending spree.

 

On the Third Day of Christmas,

The radio belted out to me,

Santa won’t you bring me the one I really need?

Won’t you please bring my baby to me!

 

On the Fourth Day of Christmas,

The mailman came to me.

I handed him my Christmas cards,

Signed with love for each addressee.

 

On the Fifth Day of Christmas

My grandma handed me,

A knitted sweater with a matching scarf,

That I  wore to my Christmas party.

 

On the Sixth Day of Christmas,

The carolers sang for me,

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

And ‘tis the season to be jolly!

 

On the Seventh Day of Christmas,

My mom placed in front of me

A Christmas Feast and sugar cookies . . .

Mental note: start diet in January!

 

On the Eighth Day of Christmas,

I watched a Christmas movie,

Sipped eggnog by the fire,

Snuggled up, all comfy, cozy.

 

On the Ninth Day of Christmas,

We drove to the mountains to see,

A snowy white Christmas,

And make snow angels with Frosty.

 

On the Tenth Day of Christmas,

The Christmas lights shone brightly,

I took a moment to take it all in.

This season sure can go by in a hurry.

 

On the Eleventh Day of Christmas

St. Nick placed under the tree,

Neatly wrapped presents,

And quickly shimmied up the chimney.

 

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas,

The good Lord sent for me,

One baby, laying in a manger,

The hope for all eternity.
