Is it starting to get to you yet? If not, it will. The Holiday Rush! It just started hitting me this week – had to work at work on Saturday, did 12 hours today, driving home, of course it’s dark, it’s December 16th in the Northern Hemisphere. Accidents on the Freeway all the way home, plenty still to do tonight…got a big party at work on Friday; later that night a big party at my place; Sunday a show we are producing at a local church. Yeah. The Rush. The Holiday Rush.
We’ll just have to resort to a sonnet to get us through this season of joy!
We are upon the season now to rush
And find the perfect gifts for those so dear.
The blast of winter weather slaps a blush
On cheeks and laughing faces filled with cheer.
In town it bristles with action – parades and throngs
Of shoppers in motion, dressed in red and green.
Decorations shine bright, there’s parties and songs
The center of town is a mad holiday scene!
So hurry on home this season of joys
Slow down and under the mistletoe be kissed.
The children will love the presents and toys.
You want those treats – the ones you can’t resist.
As another holiday season is put to rest,
We in our household wish you and your family the best!
