The crook of a candy cane
Ribboned red and white,
The thrill of chocolate chip cookies
Placed for Santa that night,
The sensation of spiced cider
With cinnamon and clove,
The scent of sweet, sweet chocolate
Melting on the stove,
Mashed potatoes and turkeys roasting
Eggnog, cocoa, and tea for toasting
The tasty construction
Of the gingerbread homes,
The rich smell of home made stuffing,
And good luck beans made with ham bones.
Cranberries bright and gleaming
As the potatoes and stuffing are steaming
A glass of milk to go with your fudge
Ignoring the scale and the holiday pudge
Pumpkin pie and other pastries
Along with homemade spice cake are temptingly tasty.
Give me the treats that make the holidays so grand
Give me the foods that make memories ever lasting
Bake with me, friends, and lend me a hand
Share with me this beautiful meal as we lend ourselves to tasting.
The holidays bring everyone together
In the spirit of love and friendship forever.
