Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house,
Every creature was hurting – even the mouse.
The toys were all broken, their batteries dead;
Santa passed out, with some ice on his head.
Wrapping and ribbons just covered the floor, while
Upstairs the family continued to snore.
And I in my T-shirt, new Reebok and jeans,
Went into the kitchen and started to clean.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the sink to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the curtains, and threw up the sash.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a little white truck, with an over sized mirror.
The driver was smiling, so lively and grand;
The patch on his jacket said “US POSTMAN”.
With a handful of bills, he grinned like a fox
Then quickly he stuffed them into our mailbox.
Bill after bill, after bill, they still came.
Whistling and shouting he called them by name:
“Now Dillard’s, now Broadway’s, now Penny’s and Sears
Here’s Levitz’s and Target’s and Mervyn’s–all here!
To the tip or your limit, every store, every mall,
Now chargeaway-chargeaway-chargeaway all!”
He whooped and he whistled as he finished his work.
He filled up the box, and then turned with a jerk.
He sprang to his truck and he drove down the road,
Driving much faster with just half a load.
Then I heard him exclaim with great holiday cheer,
“Enjoy What You Got… You’ll Be Paying All Year!”
Paragraph On Christmas
Christmas is an annual festival that falls on 25th December every year. Even though it is primarily the festival of Christians, but now-a-days it is celebrated by everyone irrespective of caste, creed, colour and religion. This is what makes this festival even more special. The festival spreads the lesson of love and is celebrated in the honour of the lord Jesus Christ. Jesus himself is the symbol of love and peace and thus the festival unites people beyond their caste and religion barriers. There are different ways of celebrating Christmas festival, but one thing that remains common everywhere is the decoration of Christmas tree which symbolizes growth and harmony and spreads the message of love and living in unity. It is typically a huge fir or pine tree decorated with lights, flowers, balloons, sweets, chocolates and gifts. The bushy tress signifies the everlasting bond between their followers and Lord Jesus.
People start their Christmas day by attending Church; they offer special services at the church, they wear new clothes, spend time with friends and family members and spend day in eating festive meals. People often exchange gifts and goodies, especially with children. Small children wait for the Santa Clause loaded with gifts and chocolates and share the same with them. Most of the private and public offices, banks, post offices, etc remain closed on Christmas Day.
