Happy Holidays


I enjoy wishing all a very Merry Christmas
Even to the people that I do not know;
Especially when I go out Christmas shopping
And blush-fully when I stand underneath the mistletoe.

I savor sending out my many Christmas cards
To all of my family and also to all of my friends;
I relish in giving out those many Christmas wishes
And those Christmas parties, them all I try to attend.

I get so excited in decorating my house
With the Christmas tree and the lights around the roof;
And the garland and the wreath that hangs upon my front door
I have the Christmas spirit, as I am its proof.

I am so thrilled to watch the Christmas parade
And the many thoughtful and happy Christmas shows;
I so much enjoy setting up my Christmas decorations
I even like it, when I wear my Christmas clothes.

This time of year has made me a more generous person
Especially more so, if the snow has begun to fall;
My joy and my happiness I can never suppress it
So, I like to smile and say Merry Christmas to one and all.

Christmas times I remember them well from my youth
Opening presents, singing songs and eating a Christmas dinner;
My Christmas now isn't dead, but surely it is dying
No longer am I Santa Claus, I am now the breadwinner.

My Christmas wishes to all has now been changed
Because of judges and laws I must change that one glorious phrase;
Even though I am still allowed to celebrate my Christmas time
I can now only wish everyone; Happy Holidays.
