Family gathers ’round the Christmas tree,
Laden with ornaments and many gifts,
Children lean in close, excitedly
Wondering what Santa’s workshop brought
Readying their voices to shout ‘yippee!’
Jittery hands peel back layers of wrapping
Santa granted their wishes and all to a T!
Magic lights up their eyes as their spirits lift
Mum and Dad smile, hearts filled with glee
Magic Nine-rhyme scheme of abacadaba
