I Don’t Feel Very Christmassy

I don’t feel very Christmassy
I don’t know what to do
So much to fit into the day
Is it the same for you?
For though that sounds a bit Grinch like
Damping the Christmas cheer
There’s always so much to get through
Just at this time of year

For Santa needs a letter writ
And presents must be bought
And cards filled out and posted quick
And special food be sought
And decorations must be hung
On trees lit with bright lights
As well as parties planned and such
That last into the night

Then crackers brought for added fun
And Christmas songs be sung
With stockings filled plus mince pies out
And yuletide bells be rung
And family activities
Must all be set in place
To make sure the best time is had
As Christmas is embraced

Yet through all this, I wonder if
We’ve lost sight of just what
Makes Christmas Christmas all the while
We may have lost the plot
And possibly forgotten that
It’s time to celebrate
A baby’s birth and family
To make Christmas first rate!

Christmas Spirit

Not long now until Christmas comes
And with it all the fun
The warm mince pies and pure magic
And Carols to be sung
The wrapping up of gifts galore
The cooking of the cake
The glasses of mulled wine to drink
And decs to hang or make
The shouting out at pantomimes
The cards to write and send
The fun times with our families
Or with other great good friends

But spare a thought for others who
Won’t feel so Christmassy
For whom Christmas joy is absent
Devoid of company
Those lost or simply all alone
Who need a little call
A visit or a drop in for
Good tidings to befall
To maybe share a Christmas smile
To spend a little time
So that all their Christmases come
At once and so sublime!

So let’s recall Christmas Spirit
With wishes for this day
That raise a glass and make a toast
With happiness to say
We wish you all a festive time
A time of joyfulness
A time where each and every one
Will feel so very blessed
A time where all humanity
Will join with festal cheer
To wish each a Happy Christmas
A jolly good new year
