Fingers wrapped around steaming mugs of hot chocolate
My breath hangs in clouds around my head
Warm coats and winter boots as we tramp through the snow
A wreath on the door surrounded by winking lights
An inviting red ribbon leading into the warmth of Home.
The perfect tree decorated with perfect lights and perfect glass balls, topped by the perfect star surrounded by perfectly picked presents.
A nativity scene of perfectly pure white, perfectly arranged around the perfect baby Jesus
The children dream of Tomorrow,
Santa dressed in a suit of white, his team of reindeer bringing presents across the world
Bright red stockings invite presents inside,
And Finally it's Christmas.
Well, the presents are opened
Well, the twinkle lights are unplugged
Well, Santa ate all his cookies and drank all the milk
Well, Christmas is over
At least tomorrow is December
I promise it will be just as cold
