T’was the night before Christmas
and not a creature was stirring
except me in my kitchen, and
the Culinary Enthusiast wrapping gifts.
Dishes are prepped for brunch tomorrow,
and the stockings hang ready to be filled
to delight children small and grown.
And now, to rest, to rise early in the morning
ready to share this special day with those
most special to me.
From my kitchen to yours,
may the spirit of Christmas be with you.
(And if you’re the cook tomorrow,
may someone else do the dishes!)
