A Modern Night Before Christmas

Christmas in General
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
'Twas the night before Christmas and all over the floor
were remnants of ribbon and papers galore
The bags from the market were safely unpacked
And all the kids presents pleasantly wrapped
Daughter and son tucked up in their beds
Giving us time to rest our sore heads
The fruits of our labours placed under the tree
Waiting to greet their excitement and glee
As we eye up the spuds that need de-frocking
And the treats that belong in each festive stocking
We both fancy a mug of sweet steaming tea
Two sugars for her, but two sweeteners for me
The turkey is prepped and the stuffing is done
I lift up the tray but this bird weighs a ton!
I shout for my wife as it threatens to fall
And am mighty relieved when she answers the call
We push the thing in with a heave and a shove
It slides into the oven like hand in glove
It's set up to cook for many an hour
We sleep through the night as it roasts full power
We carefully check through the lists we have made
The food is prepared and the gifts nicely laid
We cleared up the carpet and turned down the light
The tree and the presents a beautiful sight.
As we wait for Saint Nick we can barely sleep
Our kids are all snoozing with barely a peep
The peace and the calm will be shattered at dawn
As kids jump on beds and I stifle a yawn.
Pulling and tugging us out of our warm bed
Slowly but surely down the stairs we are led
Shrieks of excitement and shouts of happy glee
Announce Merry Christmas for our family.
Wherever you are and whatever you do
Very Merry Christmas and glad tidings too
A New Year is dawning, the old drifts away
I wish you all the best at work, rest and play.

Summary: Have a safe and happy Christmas and New Year 2010! Cheers!
