Gotta love capitalism.

~~

So let’s look ahead to the big holiday
that’s coming, coming, coming our way.
I’m sure you know just what day I mean.
It’s not Easter Sunday, not Halloween.
It’s not a day to be sad or listless.
It’s a day of wonder. It’s Christmas!

Charlotte and Emily love this season.
They’re kids, so they have good reason
to dream all year of that special
eve because they truly and deeply believe
a gift-giving fat man flies the sky,
with toys and goodies galore. No lie!
He’ll soon be up there and on his way
in a maximum-cool, cherry-red sleigh
with camouflage stars on the underside,
taking the wildest of all thrill rides,
like a roller coaster on tracks of air,
pulled by reindeer harnessed in pairs.

Aye. Although in this household we don't do that either. But for most families St. Nicholas is a big thing.

The 24th is really just a regular day here, we celebrate the 25th and 26th. 25th is the official Christmas day where most people celebrate with their own family. The 26th (called 'second Christmas Day' and an official holiday here) is usually when people visit in-laws or celebrate with friends.

25th is celebration, 24th is officially a work day but I think I only had school once on that day. 26th is Saint Stephen or someone. Not necessarily a holiday but still no work because everyone connects vacation till like new year or something

So someday soon, they’ll put up a tree.
Why only one? Maybe two, maybe three!
Deck it with tinsel and baubles bright.
It’ll be an amazing and wonderful sight.
String colored lights out on the roof-
pray none are broken by anything’s hoof.

Salt down the shingles to melt the ice.
If Santa fell, it just wouldn’t be nice.
He might fracture his leg or even be cut,
perhaps even break his big jolly butt.
They don’t want Santa’s butt in a sling.
What a ghastly, bad, unthinkable thing.

Oh, wait! I just heard terrible news.
Hope it won’t give you Christmas blues.
Santa was mugged, tied up, and gagged,
blindfolded, ear-stoppled, and bagged,
locked in his cellar under the Pole,
down in a dismal, deep, dark, dank hole.

A lemon tree? That's so Mob-esqe, I love it! :D

~~

Santa's sleigh waits in the yard
Someone has stolen his bank card.
Soon his accounts will be picked clean
Through use of automated teller machines.

Hark! The sound of silver sleigh bells
echoes high over the hills and the dells.
And look - reindeer far up in the sky!
Some silly goose has taught them to fly.

The driver giggles quite like a loon-
a madman, a goofball, a thug, or a goon.
Something is wrong - any fool could tell.
If this is Santa, then Santa’s not well.

His mean little eyes spin just like tops.
So somebody better quick call the cops!
A closer look confirms his psychosis.
And - oh, my dear - really bad halitosis.

Beware when Christmas comes this year,
because there’s something new to fear.
Santa’s twin - who is rude and mean -
stole the sleigh, will make the scene.

He’s pretending to be his good brother.
Guard your beloved children, Mother!
Down the chimney and into your home,
here comes that deeply troubled gnome.

Saw you talked about Christmas celebrations a few days ago.
In my family Christmas celebrations actually start on the 23rd, day officialy called Little Christmas Eve. This is usually when you gather your extended family (parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins (cousins' children), grandparents, etc.) for a big dinner. This isn't a popular thing anymore, but my family has always done this. The 24th is Christmas Eve, where we celebrate Christmas like most people with presents and immediate family. The 25th is Christmas Day and this is when most people have a lunch/dinner party with family or friends, which usually includes games and alcohol. The 26th is Second Christmas Day (yes, you read that right) and for most people it's a repetition of the 25th where, if you spent the 25th with your family, you do the 26th with your friends. Or if you're me, the 25th is with my family and the 26th is with my boyfriend's family.

We have Second Christmas here but I always justified that by explaining the 24th is nothing xD You just do it all and even add something extra on the 23rd.

Arty, are you making up all those rhymes yourself? That's pretty darn impressive.
