Christmas means the gathering of our enormous family
When we always enjoy special time together happily.
We welcome all in our family brood
Babies new, cousins kind and uncles rude!
The presents are stacked high under the tree
Little ones collect their gifts gleefully.
The table is set; the drinks are on ice,
The red wine is mulled with a touch of spice.
Food is loaded to the brim of each plate
Make sure to tuck in before it’s too late!
Then as quick as a wink, the day’s over again.
The dishes are all washed and left to drain.
Then it’s time for a nap, maybe a swim or a game,
Before the planning for next year begins all over again!
