Sneaking a Peek on Christmas Eve…

Hello everyone it’s time for another one of Susanna Leonard Hill’s fabulous holiday writing contests.  Here are the rules:  Write a children’s story 350 words or less with any version of “Rocking around the Christmas tree at the Christmas Party Hop” as your opening line.  The story can be poetry or prose, silly or serious or sweet, religious or not, based on Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or whatever you celebrate.

This tune was way too catchy so I wrote my story to the music of Brenda Lee, sing along and have some Christmas Cheer!!

at the presents under the tree.

Mom and Dad believed we were fast asleep,

but in reality…

Sneaking a peek on Christmas Eve is a dangerous game we play.

Crawling on our bellies all through the house,

in a covert Navy Seal way.

They would go completely mental knowing

we were here;

voices whispering,

“Shhh be quiet, getting caught would cause a riot.”

Sneaking a peek on Christmas Eve

like the ghosts of Christmas Past.

Checking out the gifts that Santa left,

and the piles that we amassed.

They would go completely mental knowing

we were here;

voices whispering,

“Shhh be quiet, getting caught would cause a riot.”

Sneaking a peek on Christmas Eve,

whose that hiding under the tree?

Oh my god, we’re busted, it’s Mom and Dad,

and they’re laughing merrily..

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holiday's To Everyone, and Safe and Peaceful New Year!

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holiday’s To Everyone, and a Safe and Happy New Year!!
