Merry Christmas Everyone! :) DISCLAIMER; This is pure fiction. Any resemblance to any actual family is purely coincidental. :)

A Crazy Christmas

The Christmas party is just an hour away,
The guests will be arriving any minute.
The children are laughing, all busy at play, 
Eying their presents and guessing what's in it.
***
Grandma and Grandpa are the first to arrive,
Carrying bags full of gifts and holiday cheer.
Grandma hugs all the kids with joy in her eyes,
While Grandpa takes care of the wine and the beer.
***
The In-Laws are usually a half hour late,
And Cousin Melanie comes in just behind.
They all complain about the roads in this state,
Would it kill them to plow and put up a sign?
***
Then it's sister Sara and her husband Tom,
They always ring the bell and run back to the car.
Forever forgetting something, they're both so blonde,
And just a little drunk from their stop at the bar.
***
Brother Paul whistles carols as he walks in the door,
With his new lover Jim - the prize catch of the day.
Says he met him while shopping at the Christmas store,
Isn't he just Fab? he asks, as he proudly displays.
***
Brother Harold, our family's very own Preacher,
Arrives at the door with a box full of bibles.
He stands on a chair like a keynote speaker,
While telling us stories of Jesus's trials.
***
Uncle Bob dressed as Santa, finally arrives,
And all the kids rush to gather by his side.
He smiles at them and says with a gleam in his eye,
"Come pull Santa's finger and you'll get a surprise". :) 
***
The women all in one room, men in another,
Drinking their Christmas cocktails, laughin' and munchin'.
Women chattin' 'bout shopping, shoes and each other,
Men 'bout stock markets, and the big game that's soon comin'.  
***
This may all seem silly or just a bit crazy,
But, I would not trade it in for anything.
It's the one time of year that means so much to me,
Spending Christmas Day with my own crazy family! 
***

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
May God bless Us All!  :)

not sure if this is based on your family or not but the story is so real and the characters so life like I am sure many people will be able to relate, bravo my friend! You captured the very heart and meaning of the holidays and why so many people enjoy them, it is all about our crazy, disfunctional, chaotic families coming together for a day of rembrance and cellabration of the one thing that ties us all together, the love of God... Purity of the soul, journey well!!! with grace and humility ANGEL

Thank you so much Caryn! :) lol! I think that this actually captures a lot of families really. :) Thanks again for the read and comments my friend! :) Ken

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
