South African Christmas

Written by: Wilma Neels

Church in the morning to thank God for His kindness
Communion with family and friends are priceless
Love and laughter with everyone near,
Welcome to my holiday home at this special time of year.

Rainbows of lights a welcome display
Trimmings and tinsel a dazzling array
All part of the decor that helps spread the cheer,
Welcome to my holiday home at this special time of year.

The yummy aroma of food in preparation 
Chicken, cold meats and salad makes a great combination,
With peppermint fridge tart and homemade ginger beer
Welcome to my holiday home at this special time of year.

The white Christmas scene you may not find, 
A warm summer's day comes to mind
A gathering under trees would never be queer
Welcome to my holiday home at this special time of year.

So blessed we are to be together
Enjoying this day in fair weather
Without Rudolph the red nose reindeer, 
Welcome to my holiday home at this special time of year.

We will end off the day with a birthday cake on a tray,
Just a little reminder of my “special” day
Extra indulgence with everyone near
Welcome to my home at this special time of year…
