The Week Before Xmas

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to pay that credit card today. Lots of stuff, mostly junk, keeps us in the red, Need to keep a little back, just to keep us fed. . Dashing through the store, pushing left and right, Looking for the sales.. Couldn’t sleep last night. Country’s in a mess, shouldn’t spend this way, Just found out I kept my job, for at least another day. Jingle bells, Jingle Bell, Jingle all the way, Holy Cow, I can’t wait, until the month of May.

I absolutely love this Christmas gem which should be rendered a classic. I love parodies and this is awesome. Got my first good laugh of the day. Thank you for sharing this perfectly penned ditty. Love Robin
