Well, here we are again! It’s Christmas Eve.
The gifts are wrapped, and under the tree.
My family’s all gathered, here in my hometown.
And I don’t have to travel all up and down.
It’s good to be home, in this place that I know.
I never thought I’d be back, but that’s how it goes.
My wish for you all, those far and those near.
Is peace, love, and family, and Christmas good cheer.
And for those in our service, so far from your home.
Know that we thank you, and you’re never alone.
Well, I hadn’t intended this doggerel rhyme.
But what the hell? It’s Christmas time!
