my Christmas story #24

one every day of the month

The Christmas Table


The family is starting to gather for Christmas day
The one time of the year that we put our problems away
Aunt Sue has made her specialty pumpkin pies that she does every year
And uncle Bill can’t be without his beer.
Aunt Marge and uncle john bring the honey ham every year
And have it pre- carved for all of us to share
Emma and Josh bring the largest butterball they could find
And having it marinated in a delicious home made wine.
The children are all grown and they like to contribute too
And adding to the table they know what they must do.
Corn on the cob, mashed potatoes and spiked egg nog
Sprinkled with cinnamon just to make their heads spin
There are Christmas gatherings around the world
Gifts under the trees for the boys and girls.
Baby JESUS made this a special day so at the
Table we must give thanks and praise
Hold hands and give thanks for what we are grateful for
and in our lives he has opened many a door.
