The time has almost come for us all to say ...

"Happy Christmas" to each other on the day
So then we can go on and make it sizzle ...
Having shared that thought (so we don't fizzle)

Many of us will sit around with family and friends
Sharing food and company from now till it ends
Making ourselves merry in all that we partake
As we engorge ourselves so much we shake

This will be the outer edge of all of the merriment
For nothing feels quite so good as that compliment
We make to each other and to our very own bodies ...
For 'tis the season to enjoy ourselves and not be shoddy

- Tristram
