Twas The Night Before Christmas ... A Mom's Take

Twas the night before Christmas...
Twas the night before Christmas...

“‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Every creature was stirring, even a louse;

The stockings were flung by the chimney without care,

By a mom who hoped bedtime soon would be there;

The children were wrestling far from their beds,

While visions of iPads danced in their heads;

And mamma with her wineglass and dad with his Pabst,

Were pickling our brains for a long winter’s nap…”

Happy Holidays, all. That’s all the parody I can type up tonight. Please fill in stanzas of your own in the comments. I’m hunkering down reading the straight-up version of this classic poem with my family, like we do every year on the 24th. Hope you’re all warm, safe and happy tonight.
