Christmas is coming

and numbing

if you've started too soon.

Christmas is shopping

and popping

corn on a blazing fire.

Christmas is snowy

and glowy

cold, on a winter's night.

Christmas is piney

and "winey"

with a toast for all.

Christmas is carols

and heralds

sung door to door.

Christmas is angels

and sleigh bells

heard on a trail of white.

Christmas is caring

and sharing

and wearing red.

Christmas is happy

and nappy

after we've all been fed.

Christmas is starry

and Mary

wrapping a newborn babe.

Christmas is worship

and a long trip

led by a bright north star.

Christmas is praying

and saying

"Glory to God in the highest

and on earth peace and good will to all men."
