Christmas: The Long Version

CHRISTMAS TREES - PAINTED -- Prawny -- PXI celebrate twelve days of Christmas.
Beginning on our Christmas day.
Keeping with cent’ries of tradition,
I give out a gift on each day.

The focus for twelve days of Christmas
Is keeping Christ’s birth fresh and new:
Continuing the happy rejoicing —
Not packing things up — as some do.

For Christmas is not just December,
And not just for two or three days —
Begun and then done oh so quickly,
Leaving many then feeling malaise.

Come, join me for twelve days of Christmas:
Sing carols and give gifts of love.
For twelve lovely days making merry,
Reveling with angels above.

    1. Thank you, Dennis. Sorry I didn’t see this earlier, but I’ve been pretty busy with some editing jobs and haven’t done much on my blogs for several weeks. I did have a great Christmas — especially with my sister feeling better physically. That was a blessing for all of us. I wish you and your family the best new year ever!
