Ho Ho Ho 🎅

Ho Ho Ho 🎅

Unravelling rolls of wrapping paper on the living room floor, when the tube rolls away from you and unwraps galore.. yards and yards of sheeted Christmas paper spread out everywhere, whilst sticky bits of selotape gets stuck in your hair..what a performance wrapping up is, whilst you are stressed to the max and in a tizz-whizz

You’ve got your television blasting out the old Christmas songs, putting you in a right festive mood with your jolly sing-a-longs.. but there are presents lying on the carpet with receipts in bags, whilst you use a pair of scissors to cut off the price tags..now using another bit of patterned paper you carefully wrap up another, with a pretty pink, glittered bow coz this one’s for your Mother..so that’s ten presents wrapped ready for the big day, there’s less than two weeks to go and Santa will be on his way

Perfect presents and parcels all looking great, now you are pleased as punch and you really cannot wait.. you’ve excelled yourself with creativity, your bespoke designing for the festivity.. Well done, pour yourself a lovely Rhubarb Gin, go on.. let your hair down, you are on an Xmas win!! ahead of your chores and still two weeks to go, Wow you are on a roll.. that’s a first you know.. it’s not just you but everybody everywhere, is full of the joys of jollyness and excited this year.. ‘Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas one and all, I hope you get lots of pressies when Santa comes to call”

LOL!! 
Awesome, Jillian! Such a fine representation of the Christmas craziness. 
Once, I accidentally wrapped myself up and placed me under the tree!! It was crazy...my parent's took me back though, and got a refund of $11.00 from WalMart. I sat in their storage room until I found an island with other misfit, accidentally wrapped people...then a reindeer with a big, red nose took me to some kid. It was dull. 
Anyway, great write! Loved it!
