Happy Christmas Eve




Christmas eve



And lights are flashing



All around are people dashing



Home from work



Through falling snow



To settle down



By firelight’s glow



Later on



Some of them mingle



With their kids



At church Christingle



Children then



Will go to bed



Waiting for



The man in red



With his sack



Filled up with toys



Meant only for



Good girls and boys



In the morning



At first light



They will see



A wondrous sight



Lots of presents



On their bed



From that jolly



Man in red



And ‘round the tree



The family come



To give their gifts



For Dad and Mum



A lovely sight



This Christmas morn



To celebrate



When Christ was born
