Here's some St. Nicholas POETRY to enjoy....

The Festival

of St. Nicholas by Mary Mapes  Dodge,

from Hans Brinker or the Silver  Skates

Welcome, friend! St. Nicholas, welcome!

     Bring no rod for us to-night!

While our voices bid thee welcome,

     Every heart with joy is light.

     "Tell us every fault and failing;

     We will bear thy keenest railing

     So we sing, so we sing:

     Thou shalt tell us everything!

"Welcome, friend! St. Nicholas, welcome!

     Welcome to this merry band!

Happy children greet thee, welcome!

     Thou art gladdening all the land.

     "Fill each empty hand and basket;

     'Tis thy little ones who ask it.

     So we sing, so we sing:

     Thou wilt bring us everything!"

What do you want for Christmas??

    I would wish that no one would have to celebrate the holiday all alone. I think loneliness at this time of year is ten times more intense. Good question Debbie. I hope this is a wonderful time of year for you and those you love.

    Like Jim Carey in the movie, I'd like to see our politicians be unable to lie. It would create a comedy of errors in Washington.

    I know it sounds corny, but I really do want peace on earth. I would just like to have a lovely day.
