Getting married at Christmas
Never heard! No, I wouldn't want to marry on Christmas day.
Not Christmas Day but a few days before would be lovely!
That would mean messing Christmas up for everyone, okay!
Apart from it making it difficult for friends and family
It would be mean and rude to share two special days selfishly.
To get the best of both the worlds with Christmassy feel
I would rather prefer to get married on the 20th December
So the reception bills and the hotel bills would be cheaper
Even a Non-Christian faith person would think in real
To keep the Christians friends away, won’t be a fair deal.
I hope one would appreciate
My humble sentiments
Wouldn’t you too?
Dr. Ram Mehta
