When Christmas was invented...

When Christmas was invented
Did someone really think
It would be fun
To run around
Being driven to the brink?

That we'd enjoy ourselves
burning the midnight oil
and the candle at both ends
with the presents that we have to buy
and the list of cards to be sent?

Add to this the parties
and late nights,
the missed sleep and the tired kids
Of course there's always a bug
going around and, despite best efforts,
will be impossible to miss. 

And every year
I promise myself
that next year will be fun
But maybe the truth is
I'm happiest being a busy Christmas elf
when all is said and done ; )
