It's Holiday season,
Time to be freezin'.
Thanksgiving will be here before we know it,
Don't stop now, you can't quit.
Numerous trips to grocery stores,
Pure mayhem when you walk through those doors.
You're ready to pull out your hair.
Long check-out lines,
Or delayed airlines.
Prepare and cook the turkey low and slow,
Wait for that golden brown skin to glow.
Place the gravy and cranberry sauce on the table,
Have conversation, turn off the cable.
Before you know it, Christmas is here,
The classic songs are music to our ears.
Yet we all dread the trips to the mall,
To find the perfect gifts, big or small.
The Christmas Tree Lighting floods TV stations,
With singers from all generations,
The scent of candy canes fill the air,
We wish the day runs smoothly, Lord, hear our prayer.
Lots of wrappers and bows cover the floor,
As we obsess over our presents more and more.
New Year's creeps up on us,
Throwing a party is always a plus.
Streamers, noisemakers, food,
Who knew planning the perfect party was of this magnitude.
The line at the liquor store gets longer and longer,
Because of the stress in picking a champagne or sparkling cider.
Deciding to prepare finger foods or a five-course meal,
Why not get take-out? DEAL!
Clock counts down from ten.
As the clock strikes one, we've made it to another year, AMEN!
"Happy New Year,"
