The Night Before Christmas

It was the night before Christmas and the entire house was asleep,
Not even Leo could be heard to be making a peep.
Little man was snuggled soundly up in his bed,
as Lightning McQueen spun circles around in his head.
The Christmas Tree was alight to greet old Saint Nick,
Who flew down the chimney so much quicker than quick.
A sack over his shoulder and a glimmer in his eye,
He lay down the gifts and took the home made mince pie.

Then out on the lawn I saw the reindeer land,
They had seen Santa sip one to many… and he was struggling to stand!
He took his time to lay down each gift with care,
and was doing a grand job until he tripped over the chair.
There was a thud and a wallop, A crash and a bang
And when he fell on his bum, oh how he sang!
The reindeer jingled and jangled their bells as they cheered Santa on,
And before I knew it the man in red had gone.

Saint Nick had stumbled back to the sleigh,
And taken a mince pie to eat along on his merry way.
Rudolph had found the carrot that had been left for his tea,
And Santa smiled revelling in all of the glee.
Santa began to whistle and shout with each hiccup and pout
as he called each Reindeer by name.
‘Now Dasher, now Dancer, Now Prancer & Vixen, On Comet, On Cupid, On Donder and Blitzen’
‘To the top of the house and onto the South, and no more sherry for me,
No not tonight!’

The jolly man on his sleigh was now well on his way,
And as he flew past my perch on the window I heard him say..
‘Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!’
I couldn’t help but giggle to myself as his sleigh flew completely out of sight.

Merry Christmas to all my readers from both Leo and I.

And to all I bid you goodnight.
