Christmas is coming
Some of the parcels are wrapped
- and posted away.
Some parcels have arrived
and await a place under the Christmas tree.
The Christmas tree in the church is decorated,
and the Nativity has been set up.
Today along the main road of town
the Christmas tree is being erected.
All I have to do is finish wrapping my parcels
and write out and post my cards.
I love this time of year,
especially as it gets closer to Christmas.
I know some people think it's a hassle
but I love the hustle and bustle,
the crowds and the noise,
the kids excitement (and sometimes tears),
the end of year school concerts and other functions,
the decorations in the streets and shops,
the carols and songs
and the busyness of it all.
So I wish you all a hassle free December
and a wonderful Advent
as we lead up to Christmas
and the celebration of the birth of Christ.
