Candy Cane Lane

Down On Candy Cane Lane
Several Elves Burst Into Flame
Rudolph Was Sad
But, Santa Was Mad
Knowing Spiked Eggnog Was To Blame.

Santa Put The Drink On A Shelf
Too High Up For Any Elf.
But, The Elves Formed A Plan
And Hired A Man
Who Took And Drank It Himself.

I. Gross Motor Skills

Legs stomp, boots leave tracks in the snow,

Running fast, catching friends before they go.

Building big snowman, arms reach high,

Sledding down the hill, laughter fills the sky.


II. Fine Motor Skills

Knotting ribbons carefully on rows,

Delicate fingers are nimble, love bestows.

Cutting paper snowflakes, tying colorful t...

the poor boy that had no Christmas



the poor boy that had no Christmas


a young boy lived in the country

looked forward to Christmas

a special time when a tree was cut

and strings of popcorn were hung


the family had little money

but the boy always received

at least a present or two

from Santa Clause when he

and his reindeers flew by on

Christmas Eve


the young boy’s best fr...

A Christmas blog




Brushing soot off his tunic (new, wipe clean, breathable material) he surveys the rooftops.

He belches, the last lot’s food offerings (whisky, milk and breakfast cereal) playing havoc with his digestive system.


Whistling for the team (trained to perfection by the reindeer whisperer) he prepares for the off.

Straightening, the man of dreams consults his watch

christmas past, 1947

christmas past 1947


when I was young

christmas was special

for a boy in a small home

that  could not afford

a big christmas


my brother and I walked

through the woods

looking for an evergreen

to cut for our tree


we finally found one

but it was spindly

few branches flowing from

its skinny trunk


we cut it and dragged

it home through the...

Santa felt sassy and seasoned

Having switched from soda to whiskey

Stirred and slurred, his vision was blurred

Sleigh-driving was stupidly risky


Sloshing around but still seated

Strapped in, seemingly quite self-assured

Whilst swerving through Nice, he saluted the police

Whose chopper was wisely insured


Donna and Blitzen were startled

Dancer and Prancer were ma...

Sod Santa!

'He's chubby and wise
And how his eyes glisten'
But…  Sod Santa, I say
Not that anyone listens
His damn sleigh is a nuisance
With high whistles and bells,
The lights and the fog horn
And wet reindeer smells
The noise, the commotion
The hurry, the fuss
The shouting and cursing
As he flies dawn to dusk
And I don't need the sound
of the hooves on my roof
Nor the turds t...

Here's a bit of fun as we approach the Christmas month - some sympathy for all those Mums &

Dads left behind by their technically-savvy kids!  All credit to Pete Dymond and Marcie Summers

(who does a great job as "the kids" on the audio).
