Santa Isn't Coming To Town

entry picture


I should explain that the first weekend in December is Father Christmas Weekend in Kirkby Lonsdale. He goes through the town pointing his wand at the lights on the trees above all the shops switching them on as he goes along. Sadly not this year. 


It should happen today
To bring us much cheer
He comes for the day, sadly not this year
Santa isn't coming to town

Covid cancelled his trip
To switch on the lights
We lit up our trees, so now they shine bright
Santa isn't coming to town

He drives through town on his sleigh
His magic wand turns on the lights
Sad but true, due to Covid rules this year 
We will miss this magical sight

ohh....

I think Santa could add a reindeer called Covid to the team pulling
his transport this time around. The name seems to match the style of the rest to my ear at least😃.The writer of this song got the idea
on a city train, proving that inspiration can strike at any time. An encouraging lesson for us all.

Thanks for the likes all.
Great story Stephen G.

St. Nicholas (celebrated on 6 December in Belgium) has been waving to schoolchildren from the roof in some towns.
I once dressed up as St Nicholas for the daughter of some friends and then had to wait 30 minutes on a busy street corner while they tried to start their car. The 'Ho-Ho-Ho's became a bit repetitive but at least nobody recognised me.
Maybe Santa Claus can appear virtually? (Brian Blessed on Skype?)
