I enjoy wishing all a very Merry Christmas
Even to the people that I do not know
Especially when I go out Christmas shopping
And blush-fully when I stand underneath the mistletoe.
I savor sending out my many Christmas cards
To all of my family and also all of my friends
I relish in giving out those many Christmas wishes
And the Christmas parties, them all I try to attend.
I get so excited in decorating my house
With the Christmas tree and the lights around the roof
And the garland that hangs upon my front door
I have the Christmas spirit, as I am its proof.
I am so thrilled to watch the Christmas parade
And the many thoughtful and happy Christmas shows
I so much enjoy setting up my Christmas decorations
I even like it, when I wear my Christmas clothes.
This time of year has made me a more generous person
Especially more so if the snow has begun to fall
My joy and happiness I can never suppress it
So, I like to smile and say Merry Christmas to all.
Christmas times I remember them well from my youth
Opening presents, singing songs and eating Christmas dinner
My Christmas now isn't dead, but surely it is dying
No longer am I Santa Claus, I am now the breadwinner.
My Christmas wishes to all has now been changed
Because of judges and laws I must change that one glorious phrase
Even though I am still allowed to celebrate my Christmas time
I can now only wish everyone, Happy Holidays.
