What do you wish for on Christmas Eve?

I wish for….

Silver tinsel & glitter to sprinkle,
Colored lights that dance & twinkle!
Bright golden bells that go ring-a-ling,
Pretty choirs of angels that sing!

Cinnamon & peppermint swirls to dance in my nose,
A mug filled with piping hot cocoa & toasty marshmallows.
My cozy red & green slippers snug on my toes,
A crackling warm wooden fire that glows.

And oh how I wish,
The sky to bring a blanket of snow!
So I could feel Winter’s magical flakes,
Between my fingers and toes!

Then Mama reads ‘Twas the The Night Before Christmas’,
While visions of Santa & his reindeer dance in my head.
Oh, Christmas, come quickly! I wish –
As Mama & Papa tuck me to bed.
