A Traditional Family Christmas

By Len Newey

A truly traditional Christmas,

Are the ones that are worthwhile…

Those little get togethers,

That leaves you with a smile…

The presents that were given,

Were the ones we made ourselves…

None of these came from Santa,

Or any of his elves…

Someone baked a cake,

While others made a card…

It was just a simple gesture,

That really isn’t hard…

I remember sampling home brew,

From the father in law on Christmas day…

That was quite a drop

We were jingling all the way…

Just a little bit of thought,

Imagination was the key…

That’s what we all used,

For those presents beneath the tree…

You would always get a laugh…

As you tried your very best…

To make you’re little present…

Stand out from all the rest…

Some were wrapped in newspaper,

Then put into a bag…

With another layer of paper,

And a fancy Christmas tag…

So spread that Christmas cheer,

Add your special little touch…

It will mean the world to someone else

It really isn’t much…

Merry Christmas
