'Twas the Night Before Christmas...

With apologies to Clement C. Moore.......

'Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Except for a mouse -

Who came out of his hole
And went straight to his work.
He ate all the candy, he was a real jerk!

When out on the lawn I heard such a noise,
I jumped out of bed, and fell over the toys.
I looked out the window and what did I see -
The partridge had fallen out of the pear tree.

As I turned and tripped back across the floor,
I heard another sound, just outside my door.
I though I should look, but I was full of fright,
So I crept back to bed and pulled the covers up tight.

I thought I could sleep, but that wasn't to be,
'Cause the mouse was still crunching on the candy.

Then, I heard ol' Santa and all his reindeer,
Heard him shout "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year".
Then he yelled something else as he drew out of sight --
It sounded like, "I'm glad I only have to do this one night -
Rudolph, put that partridge back up in the tree,
And let's go home, I need a hot cup of tea!"


  1. Really chuckling over here, Bonnie. I enjoyed that. :-)

    1. You're welcome. Wrote it a long time ago, and just found it.

  3. By gosh, you have PURE talent! Who would have thunk someone could create a new laugh using this old favorite? Now for that cup of tea...

    1. Thank you Kathy. Sometimes the foolishness just eeks out of my pores. Makes a mess, but I can't help it. :)
