🎄Seasonal messages, a verse, a card, and more…

Time to lighten up for the festive season…


Hip hip hooray!
Christmas cheer.
It’s that time of year.

Dropping hints
Shopping stints
Less worry
More merry

Ding dong bell 🔔
Let all be well!
It’s jingle bells
And cinnamon smells.

Walking on eggshells

Seasonal Greetings
Family meetings
Some travel afar
Some stay where they are.

Fewer silly squabbles,
Wibbles and Wobbles.
Fewer family feuds.
We hope.

Less distance
Less insistence
Less being rude.
A chance to diffuse a family feud.

A chance to savour delightful food.
Savour the festive fervour.
Takes us one step further.
Festive mugs.
Hugs (sans bugs).

A few more words and my ‘homemade holiday snaps’ to brighten the days until the New Year:

‘I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.’ Maya Angelou.
😉 😊

A little something to make you smile:

‘Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle’ or may be suffering a sadness you know nothing about. My heart goes out to everyone who is finding this time of year difficult.
