Holy Crap, Back Already!

Charlie Brown Style Christmas Tree

It seems I just took down the­ Christmas Lights.

I do not believe it’s been 365 days and nights.

So here once more I’m testing bulbs and untangling wire

With hopes of illuminating the house to my hearts’ desire.

I should just leave the darn things up all year round,

But my home owners’ association would surely frown.

I’m almost certain even Santa doesn’t go to all this trouble.

I know you don’t agree and I hate to break your bubble,

But I know he has his elves do the work, every bit of it.

Not resting until all the garland is strung and every light is lit.

I have to agree our house does look Christmassy by the time I’m done,

Though the curmudgeon in me would never admit to any of it as fun.

Nor will he ever divulge what he does Christmas Eve just before bed

Rumor has it he takes one last peek out the window in hopes of spotting a sled.
