Read or sing to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”
On the Friday after Thanksgiving determined to Un-Grinch
I hung a festive swag on the door.
On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, still planning to Un-Grinch
I added a little something more.
On the Sunday after Thanksgiving, Un-grinching underway
I decorated pretty much all day.
On the Monday after Thanksgiving, I had to go to work
The Grinch reared his ugly head, that jerk!
Determined to defeat him, I headed to a store
Shopping in the Christmas aisle for more.
Home and wrapping presents, singing Christmas songs
The Grinch rang the doorbell ” ding ding dong” .
There on the doorstep he’d left a little note
admitting that I’d found the antidote.
He said that Christmas spirit defeats him every time.
I smiled from ear to ear and wrote this rhyme.
