Christmas Spirit

The Christmas Spirit is here again

Santa visits every year

And he always waits to the end of December

So the food and vegetables are dear

The Christmas Trees are on display

Everywhere you look

Plenty of Meat, Chicken & Turkeys

In the Butchers for you to cook

Mistletoe and Holly and Baubles for the tree

And every kind of present on sale

For the likes of you and me

The Mince pies and the Crackers

They all stay the same

And sometimes they are buy one get one free

But itís all a ploy by Santa

To increase the joviality

And encourage all the Ladies to spend

Then spend and spend some more

To make sure when he comes down the Chimney

There are presents to lay all over the floor

In the hope that the children who receive them

With excitement will really enjoy

The host of presents and parcels

Where as kids we only had one toy

So now as this tale I bring to a close

To all readers near and far

Now snow means Santa will come on his Sleigh

But Maybe arrive in an expensive 4 X 4 Car

Merry Xmas to you all
