The Night Before Christmas and a Good Cuppa Tea

It’s been quite a year and isn’t over yet, but I’m already winding down 2011 and gearing up for 2012. Before that, though, I wanted to present you all with this little missive, shamelessly based on Clement Clarke Moore’s classic poem:

Twas the night before Christmas
Where Santa Snoopy sat
In his red Santa suit
And a red Santa hat

The lebkuchen were set
’Side the tea mug with care
For gobbling by Santa
When he arrived there

The tea mug was filled
With most tasty tea
And milk and some sweetener
To bring Santa glee

Poinsettias and evergreens
Add their festive hues
And snowglobe with sleigh ride
Will cure Santa’s blues

In exchange for these goodies
Great gifts we’ll receive
Our thank you from Santa
’Cause we still believe!

Here’s hoping that you get all the great gifts you asked Santa for!
