Christmas week VII

7 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Christmas week’ series

The Christmas week now
today sees its end
with just five days to go
before this year we’ll send

On its way with relief
as really we should
as let’s face it, it’s truly
not been that good

But before it’s sent packing
we still have some December
to fill with good things
for us to remember

Christmas week VI

6 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Christmas week’ series

T’was the day after Christmas
twenty-sixth of December
and if I say so myself
a one to remember

For this year as we know
has been naff to extreme
the worst one in fact
that the world has yet seen

But despite all the naffness
we have still come together
for the best of good times
we will treasure forever

Christmas week V

5 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Christmas week’ series

The week before Christmas
has been and has gone
And it’s Christmas Day now
that this day is upon

We’ve had Bucks Fizz for breakfast
and a walk on the beach
a tradition of ours
as it’s in easy reach

Christmas dinner’s at five
but before that in store
are whoops of delight
and presents galore

Christmas week IV

4 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Christmas week’ series

T’was the week before Christmas
and the last day arrived
Twenty-fourth of December
and we’d all survived

The gifts are all wrapped
and the ‘bubble’ is here
with big smiles all round
for good Christmas cheer

And as we settle down
for ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’
we’ll put to one side
all the trouble and strife

Christmas week III

3 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Christmas week’ series

T’was the week before Christmas
just two days to go
Twenty-third of December
and all were a-glow

For true festive spirit
descended today
and despite the restrictions
with loud ‘weh-heh-hey’!

As we are determined
this Christmas will be
the best Christmas ever
for our family

Christmas week II

2 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Christmas week’ series

T’was the week before Christmas
just three days to go
Twenty-second December
but no sign of snow

But the Bethlehem star
from the planets alignment
had shown on the Solstice
for worldwide excitement

So that was quite special
for many to see
in the week before Christmas
in twenty twenty

Christmas week I

1 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Christmas week’ series

T’was the week before Christmas
just four days to go
and most of the household
was ready to go

The tree had been splendid
for several weeks there
with gifts now appearing
just waiting to share

And excitement was growing
there in the wings
for this time with a promise
of the joy that it brings

This time last year III

This time last year
rather innocently
we went up to London
town where did we
gather therein at
the Royal Alert Hall
to raise a loud voice
with glad anthem call
for Christmas carols
there with the throng
as myriad voices
joined there in song

And as we all sang
on the last encore
not one of us knew
what next lay in store
As there in that moment
triumphant the cause
as the joy was repeated
in the loud applauds
But now we have lived
with it under our noses
we have a new hope
as 2020 it closes

So as another new year
waits there in the wings
we hear the loud voice
as the whole nation sings
and the hope we now have
as life it resumes
is evident here
in our joyful tunes
A carol at Christmas
sung loud with the throng
as myriad voices
unite in the song

Lost and found

We lost the baby Jesus
for several years one time
‘Til Emily found him in a vase
one Spring, so now it’s fine
The nativity is whole once more
so at Christmas time each year
It finds its home upon the shelf
to bring its festive cheer
Its history helps keep alive
with provenance that tale
of the baby Jesus lost and found
which we each year regale

Carols at Christmas

We all went up to London
to the Royal Albert Hall
Voices ready to sing loud
proclaiming Christmas call

The Philharmonic orchestra
was wonderful to hear
five thousaand people joining in
with rousing festive cheer

And the mexican wave was something else
all adding to the thing
this unique celebration gave
with carols there to sing
