Twas the blog post before Christmas

Time for my annual traditional blog post, with apologies to C. Clement Moore! (You can see the last three years’ Christmas poems here, here and here.)

Twas the day before Christmas
and there is plenty to do.
But my first thought this morning?
Write a blog post for you!

My day will entail
cooking and cleaning – no trip to the mall!
I’ve a long day ahead
but feel rather calm ’bout it all.

My yard has been cleaned
of all the debris.
I paid a guy
to do this for me!

Clean yard

I’m out of school for 12 days
on this holiday break.
A well deserved rest
students and staff we will take


There’s no snow on the ground.
This Christmas will be green.
But there are other
fun sights to be seen.

Christmas Collie

When my gift wrapping began,
it was a bit of a fright,
Wrapping chaos
but I worked my way through
by the end of last night.
Ready to go

So now I face Christmas Eve morning
with a list long as my sleeve,
and a hope this bad poetry
won’t cause you to leave

before I’ve had the chance
with all of my might,
to wish you all Merry Christmas
and to all a good night!


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family! All the work will be worth the love and joy which will be returned to you.

  2. You did a good job with the gift wrappings, and tomorrow it’ll look the same as before the wrapping but the joy of gift giving is the most important. Merry Christmas to you and your family Karen.

  8. Quels beaux cadeaux tu as enveloppés et quel joli poème tu as encore eu le temps de composer !
    Merci Karma, je suis sûre que votre Noël en famille a été merveilleux. Nous avons passé le 25 à la clinique avec mon père, repas familial et great togetherness.
