String your garlands

Buy your poinsettias

Hang your stockings with care

Check your lights

Set out the Nativity

Find the Elf

Mail the Greeting Cards

Hang the mistletoe

Pick out your tree

Set the star

Find the angel topper

Hang the ornaments

String the icicles

Flock the windows

Set out the cookies

Wait for Santa to come

About the Creator

Mother Combs

Come near, sit a spell, and listen to tales of old as I sit and rock by my fire. I'll serve you some cocoa and cookies as I tell you of the time long gone by when your Greats-greats once lived.

    This reminds me that Christmas is a lot of work!!πŸ˜‚ My hubby wants to quit as it is a lot of hauling around for him. Packing and unpacking, putting up and taking down. How can we quit when we have so many grand and great grandchildren? We can't!!❀️
