Indian-American Holiday-W

Sleigh bells ring, do finish shopping, the countdown is on, 
Be kind enough to spare your precious hours two or more 
Being Indians, we’re quite new to this kind of celebration
Welcome to my “Holiday home” at this special time of year

We borrowed two whimsical trees flanking the front door
A large, chunky garland ready to greet you as you will enter
With Santa saying “The end of the world is home” as you enter
Welcome to my “Holiday home” at this special time of year

Our humble dining room features all things traditional
These *Laxmi ornaments of gold bring sparkle and color
Wish I could keep this glittery peacock our bird national
Welcome to my “Holiday home” at this special time of year

Here is our sitting room is done in a theme musical
The tree filled with ornaments of gold, green and copper
We’re in the kitchen; here we decided to go whimsical
Welcome to my “Holiday home “at this special time of year.

Oh, so hard to bypass the yummy treats for our tummies
Crown Pork Roast, *Jalebi and ladoos, curry and cauliflower
Baked brie, prime rib, *pakodas with Chutney, and cookies
Welcome to my “Holiday home” at this special time of year.

Bear with me as we are vegetarians we have our dishes.
And for desserts, peanut butter cookies and candies there
Fresh snow dripping out, please move to the safe recesses 
Welcome to my “Holiday home” at this special time of year


*Indian name**Indian delicacies,

Tenth Place Win in
