Twas the Day before Christmas Eve, and all through the house such a flurry of activity; why even the mice.
Litter boxes were bleached; carpets cleaned; and the wood was all polished in hopes that visitors would appear.
The kitchen gleamed and smelled of spice, Momma in her most festive mood yet.
Cheeses were cut, and meats rolled, bread cut in triangles, and creamed cheese laid plain.
Music blared on our PC speakers as Papa hurried and scurried about.
In the end the house was all cleaned and the house was silent.
Even the kittens were worn out from the days activities.
I in my pyjamas and Papa in his chair, settled down to ring in the Holiday.
The food is all ready and the house is too.
In hopes that Holiday Visitors stop to bring along some cheer.
Happy Holidays - Christmas, Yule, Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, FrostFall, and All other Mid Winter Festivals - to one and all.
