Christmas is here! I have been very busy getting ready for my family to come. Most of my family isn't real close so it means all we can hope for is good weather. On Christmas Eve dinner there will be 25 of us sitting down to eat and enjoy Christmas together. However, I'd like to take time to wish all of my readers of "THE COOKING CORNER" a Joyous Holiday Season with your family and friends, always remembering, "Let there be peace on Earth."

I'm not very good at writing poetry but here is my attempt that I wrote a few years ago.

I Love the Christmas



Just like I always did

Those many years ago

When I was still a

wide-eyed kid.

I enjoy the fun of


For that special

Christmas tree,

And when it's trimmed

and lighted

No one's happier than


I love to watch the faces

Of my little girl and boys

As they open up their


And see their Christmas


I like to send out

Christmas cards

And wrap each gift with


Help plan the family


For all of us to share.

To me, each holiday

Is more joyful than the


My one complaint is that

it seems

To hurry by too fast!

And I'm quite sure that


I'm very, very old and


I will still believe that


Is a very special day!
