A Christmas Poem — “Fireside Questions for Santa”

“Fireside Questions for Santa”

With Christmas Day drawing nigh,

I have some questions and wonder– “Why?”

Like — What is it about Santa that makes little kids cry?

And how in the world does he get reindeer to fly?

How high do leaves go when they “mount to the sky”?

How many toys do elves make, versus Santa having to buy?

❄    ❄    ❄

So going to stay up late, or at least I’ll try,

And will hide behind the sofa, on Santa to spy.

I want to face him– eye to eye,

To directly ask the jolly elf guy—

“With no disrespect or meaning to pry–

How is it a fat old man can be so spry?

And get down the chimney without bruising a thigh?”

❄    ❄    ❄

So, busily hanging stockings by the chimney to dry,

While waiting here for Santa with questions to ply,

But for now, I’m hungry and will bid “goodbye”,

Here anxiously awaiting the Old Boy to drop by.

❄    ❄    ❄

Sugar cookies, gingerbread, and cake with spice,

Munching all with a mug of hot chocolate are nice,

But goodness, gracious, oh me oh my,

Just can’t wait to slice into the Pumpkin Pie!

So please hurry, Santa — simply land on our lawn,

Because if you don’t arrive soon your snacks will be gone!

Wishing all a Merry Christmas — “and to all a Good Night!”


Thank you for visiting and hope you enjoyed this fun little rhyme.

While celebrating the joys of the holiday season it is always good to keep in mind that this time of year can be difficult and less than joyful for many who have experienced difficulties, life challenges, loss, or facing the holiday season alone for the first time. Will you join us by compassionately reaching out to include others in your celebrations? The holiday season, Christmas especially, is truly a time for sharing.

God bless and Merry Christmas!


“Christmas is forever, not for just one day –  for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away                                     like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.                                      The good you do for others is good you do yourself.” –  Norman Wesley Brooks

                      “They err who thinks Santa Claus comes down through the chimney;                       he really enters through the heart.” – Paul M. Ell
