Dedicated to all the wonderful men who grace the malls and schools, and businesses, who give of their time to bring joy to the children, and smiles to the adults…I say Thank you πŸ™‚

Twas the night before Christmas
The place was in tatters
Ribbons and wrappings
And empty cookie platters

With no time to waste
I had to move fast
The children were waiting
With lists in their grasps

I threw on my long johns
And fastened the flap
I hope I can get out of these things
In a snap!

With my belly all stuffed
And my white fluffy beard
Donned my red woolen coat
Wrapped in holiday cheer

Little eyes glowing, pure and simple, with glee
When they came and they sat upon my bended knee
The excitement I saw, was worthy of bliss
When they jumped off my lap, and blew me a kiss

Oh! What joy it brings to my heart
Making sure all was merry and bright
With my sack fully packed
And the sleigh on its way
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night!
