December is waiting and wanting and wishing
and longing for Christmas Day.
This is the merriest month of all –
Make a cranberry rope, a popcorn ball,
Cookies to hang on the tree,
Hide presents in places where none can see.
We try to be as a good as gold all month, so very good,
Because we know who’s coming down the chimney –
Jolly Santa Claus!
