Twas the week before Christmas . . .

Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house
all Creatures were scurrying with spirits aroused 
for the timeline to Christmas rushed closer each day
Presents and family and extravagant soirees

To do lists lengthened like unraveling cloth
While stresses conquered in evergreen and mauve
Why the crazy fuss and why all the bustle?
Why all the money and holiday hustle?

The light in the east showed the hope of the globe
Sorrow turned joy as crimson love overflowed
As Christmas day dawns and darkness abates
ACCFamily says: Merry Christmas! Happy new Year! Celebrate!
