DAY 6 Of #12DaysofChristmas: “The Ideal Christmas” by Adetoyese Odekunbi

ideal1

On the 6th day of Christmas, Adetoyese Odekunbi brings you:

The night looks charming and gay
The streets brightly lighted
With colourful bulbs and Christmas tunes
Kids happy in their new dresses
Gallantly marching across the street
All awaiting the arrival of Santa
On his reindeer

The poor and depressed forget their grief
With everyone’s lips
Curved into a smile
The Christmas carol they sing
And gifts they share among one another

For Christmas is a season
To extend love, joy and happiness
To care for the sick
And provide for the needy
This is what Christmas is about
And not merrymaking alone…
