The Day before Christmas



The day before Christmas,
The shopping’s all done,
The wind’s strongly blowing,
And there is no sun.

No snow is falling,
The roads are all clear.
The house is all cheery
For Santa is near.

The kids may be bored,
But they won’t complain.
“This is more fun than school,”
They’ll gladly explain.

On their computers,
They’ll play and explore,
Hoping that Christmas
Will help them buy more.

And families will gather,
And all will have fun,
Tomorrow, when Christmas
Is here and is done.

The stockings will fill
With candy and treats.
The tables all loaded
With good things to eat.

And will any remember,
Midst comfort and joy,
That this all was started
By the birth of a Boy?
