Christmas is the time to kindly say gift receipt me please,
Just in case the gift you give me don’t fully decorate my trees.
When you shop there’ll be no need for you to put in a lot of thought,
As long as there’s a gift receipt for whatever it is you’ve bought.
Then I’ll be sure that I can get the right color and in my size,
There really is no down side except for the lack of any real surprise.
But after all we’re not kids and we know that magic is not fact,
And a gift receipt can save hurt feelings with a modicum of tact.
Then bake some Christmas cookies and mark them with my name,
And I will also make a batch and with yours do the same.
This way we are assured of getting all the ones that we love,
I would like to thank you right now for going over and above.
Today I saw a Christmas card at one of the local stores,
I took a picture of it with my phone and sent it to you and yours.
Share the spirit of Christmas with family, friends and everyone in between,
And be sure to shop the after Christmas sales ‘cause it’s almost Halloween.
