Christmas to Me

Tell me what sparks the season for you?
Is it wine & sing-song, rich food, time with family?
Let me share with you here, my little thoughts,
The things that mean Christmas to me.

Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Mixed Spice,
Cloves, Star Anise, clementines, two or three
Take your pick, mulled wine or spiced cider?
These are the things that are Christmas to me

Hot Chocolate, marshmallows, cookies, and cream,
Letters to Santa written on festive stationary.
Donโ€™t forget anything, excitement is brewing
These are the things that are Christmas to me.

Crafting, creating, making things of our own,
From cards that we write to trims for our tree
That are wonky, imperfect but swathed in charm.
These are the things that are Christmas to me.

Lights being switched on, school plays & song
A visit to the man in red that enhances our glee
Shopping & stopping, a warm treat or two
These are the things that are Christmas to me.

Christmas pudding, mince pies, oh the mince pies,
The roasties, the sprouts, the ham and the turkey.
Baking and gifting, baking and eating!
These are the things that are Christmas to me.

Christmas tree twinkling, the fire aglow,
Reading stories to the smallest in my little family.
Time together with Christmas movies & cuddles,
These are the things that mean Christmas to me.

Baking cookies for Santa to leave with his milk,
Sprinkling food for the reindeer with sparkles to see.
The Night Before Christmas, tuck them in tight.
These are the things that mean Christmas to me.

A little time to reflect on the year that has passed,
Time together, to relax, to unwind, time to just be.
Making more memories to add to those made,
These are the things that mean Christmas to me.ย
