For you, at Christmas

Christmas comes but once a year
well thank the Lord for that
'cos all the Happy Christmas cheer
could make a girl quite fat;
With turkey, cake and cranberry sauce,
a drop of wine or two
and Christmas pudding too, of course
Well what's a girl to do?

And then there's all the other stuff,
like what to buy for who;
D'you think she'll like the pink earmuffs
or should I get the blue?
The Christmas party's been arranged
but oh, what will I wear?
This shopping's making me deranged -
I'm coming through, beware!

But now that all the gifts are wrapped
and underneath the tree,
'Tis time for us to all relax
in peace and harmony;
And as I sit and contemplate
this year and all it brought,
I hope that it is not too late
to share with you this thought:

I found myself in Cyberspace
a few months back, you see;
and in the process found a place
in Blogland, just for me.
I've made some very special friends
and had a lot of laughs
You're always there to listen when
the world gets grim and dark

So even though we've never met
I still would like to say
I'll think of you with sentiment
this coming Christmas day.
Have fun out there where'er you are,
be safe, where'er you go
and put away the Humbug's Bah,
It's Christmas! Ho Ho Ho!

Since things are about to get really busy and what with everyone going away and being off work etc, blog postings will be a bit on the erratic side for a while, I guess.
So I'll say it now before we all disappear for the holidays.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!
