Christmas Past
« on: 04 Dec 2020, 19:18 »
I want to go back to the eighties, and stay there in the past,
When Christmas was so magical, and we all had a blast.
Festivities were a ritual, that we followed every year,
We spent the time together with those that we held dear.
Coloured lights festooned the town, Santa sat in his grotto,
Parents shopped until they dropped, then went home and got blotto.
Cards were written to everyone that lived along our street,
When we received the same from them, our Christmas was complete.
We loved to decorate the tree, balloons hung from the ceiling,
Singing carols by the fire, you could not beat the feeling.
Baking savoury sausage rolls, filling rich mince pies,
So they were ready for Xmas day, when we opened up our eyes.
And when the big day did arrive, we were excitable and keen,
Dashing downstairs at seven o'clock, in the hopes that 'He had been.'
Gobbling the turkey roast, proudly standing for the Queen,
Jelly, fruit and chocolate log, with lots of snacks in between.
We laughed at jokes from crackers, got a little plastic toy,
Played all the gifted board games, it really was a joy.
We wore our silly paper crowns, watched Morecambe and Wise on TV,
When at last we waddled off to bed, we felt as happy as could be.
The best was Christmas eighty four, when the rubber button Spectrum,
Was brought by Santa in his sack, with a guitar and a plectrum.
Life was so much simpler then, people seemed more content,
How I miss those halceon days, and wonder where they went.

Hope you enjoy the poem. Happy Christmas to one and all.  :)
