What I like most about Christmas Day
Is listening out for old Santa’s sleigh.
I hear the reindeer’s hoof
Land so hard on my roof.
At least that keeps the burglars at bay!
I’ve always enjoyed a good sing
At Christmas I love carolling
And then a mulled wine or two
Fruit cake, chocs and mince pies too
It’s not the season for dieting!
