Christmas Celebrations - A Constanza


See how Christmas fete on earth Indians will walk to the mass Enjoy curries and sweets enmass Australians hang wreaths girthed Here Santa gives rest to reindeer Changes dress for less ”hot” with cheer. Chinese light streets and stores with mirth Santa is called “Shen Dan Lao Ren” In shops only the grottos plain. Yule logs burned in French hearth With food left, the logs burn all night In case Jesus comes in the night. Russians fast till first star rebirths Then break fast with Kutia eating For good luck throw some up ceiling. Ways and approach differ on earth Call him Christ, Gud, Gott, dieu,dio, God Ishwar, Allah, he’s the same lord. See how Christmas fete on earth Australians hang wreathes girthed Chinese light streets and stores with mirth Yule logs burned in French hearth Russians fast till first star rebirths Ways and approach differ on earth
