Christmas comes but once a year.
Once a year is more than enough.
Couldn’t we change it to every other year?
That would be more practical, I think.
It would fit my budget and my
Planning calendar better that way.
Couldn’t we carol every six years,
And maybe give gifts every ten?
Traveling, and standing in line,
Making a turkey, a ham, or both;
Oh, what stress I’m in just
Thinking about all the fun.
Holidays are never as
Wonderful as they are
Hyped up to be.
Christmas is a religious holiday,
At its heart. But it’s gotten
So commercial, or it’s a time
For family to gather,
Which means asking off of work.
Can my schedule fit
The schedule of everyone else?
Oh, what a mess!
