Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (North Pole Business)

The North Pole was as busy as it could be-

For the elves were preparing “all” for Santa to put under the tree.

.

All the children ha written Santa a special letter-

And to fill all the requests, the elves knew better.

.

To work hard to complete that long long list-

Not one child would be skipped, not one request would be missed.

.

The same results were accomplished each and every year-

With much dedication and so much Christmas cheer.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Seventy Years Ago During The Christmas Season)

I was reading an article about how folks used to celebrate

Christmas back in the old days.  Seventy years ago things

were quite different.

.

Everyone still gathered round to listen to the radio. The

whole family tended to listen to the same music, and of

course there was no such thing as social media, in any

form or fashion.

.

To go to Grandmother’s was a tradition that had been

carried out for many generations. No one made giblet

gravy like she did. Even if you didn’t like her cooking you

didn’t have much of a choice, for she was the one doing

the cooking, and there were no take out places.

.

Everyone was still heavily involved in shopping for Christmas,

but they tended to wait a moment, until at least Thanksgiving

was over, and the bird had been picked clean. Later on Black

Friday appeared and now we cannot even wait for that moment.

.

Things have certainly changed over the years, but many things

also remain the same. We still put up a pine tree , decorate

it, and put presents under the tree. We cook a ham and enjoy

the sweets that are made for the season.

Of course, things did get easier for the elder generation. The ones

before that required hunting for meat and doing all the prep

work.  Everything was made by hand, with much creativity.

“Back in the old days-

Things were both alike and different, in many ways.”

Another Season At Hand (2006)

The getting ready for the holidays has just begun-

The preparation for the special day, is so much fun.

As everyone crosses off the names on their list.

The decorations are going up, all over town-

Santa, here and there, will be seen visiting around.

Cars will be towing the Christmas trees on the hood-

Lots of wreaths will be decorating vehicles, as they should.

And the excitement for the kids, will begin when-

All of the finals are over, and the winter holidays begin.

No school for several weeks is an exciting thing to encompass-

The Christmas season is again upon us at last.

And as far as what all there will be plenty to do-

All one has to do is read their Houston Chronicle through and through.

Where the time went, who can tell-

But, since we love this time of the season, oh, well.

.

Another year has happened to pass by-

And here we are again singing, oh, you’d better not cry.

.

Enjoy the season, for it was meant to be an enjoyed, the whole season long-

Let’s pull out our old songbooks, and sing a holiday song.

What a wonderful holiday season it is gonna be.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 859 (The Noisy Mouse)

On Christmas Eve, that regular quiet mouse-

Decided to make a lot of noise, throughout the house.

.

First he ran and chewed and caused a stir-

With that recently read newspaper.

.

And, then he decided to hunt, for the sugar bowl-

He knocked off the top, and ate heartily, as was his goal.

.

He then went into the bathroom, with all of that tissue, at hand-

He dragged it this way, and then he dragged it that way, nowhere

near the wastepaper can.

.

It was getting late, and he knew that Santa Claus was about to come-

But, first he had to try out his green thumb.

.

He dug into the huge plant, by the window-

And, then onto the window sill, he did go.

.

He heard bells, and other stuff, and he knew

that out of time, he had run-

To scurry, hurry, he needed to get things

cleaned up, for it quickly had to be done.

.

And, when he was finished he closed his

eyes-

Hoping that Santa Claus would leave him

something, like one big surprise.

.

Decided to make a lot of noise, throughout the house.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 683 (Santa Was Running Late)

Santa Claus was running late-
For he had to catch up on some
old Christmas movies, that he
hadn’t seen, as of late.
.
First there was “The Magic Christmas Tree”-
Made in 1964, where there were three wishes to be.
.
And, in 1941, “The Night Before Christmas”-
Where many battles between Tom and Jerry,
they did merrily amass.
.
Next came “Scrooge”, so many versions there
came to be-
One made in 1935, one made in 1951, and
a musical in 1970.
,
“Prancer” made in 1989-
Where a girl nurses a reindeer, and makes
him well and fine.
.
“Twas the Night Before Christmas” had
to be seen-
An oldie, made back in 1914.
.
“Miracle on 34th Street, Santa knew well-
For back in 1947, he sat and watched it
for a spell.
.
Santa had seen “A Christmas Carol” made in
1938, so many times through the years-
First, it brought sadness, then it brought
cheers.
.
Santa knew that he was on a schedule,
but, to see a few more-
So many Christmas movies had been
made, it was hard for him to get out the door.
.
“Elf” in 2003, especially made Santa laugh-
As a matter of fact, it tickled his whole
toy making staff.
.
In 1990, “Home Alone” Santa could remember
when-
So much action was performed by that little Kevin.
.
“How the Grinch stole Christmas” in 1966-
Was a favorite for the kids, and one of Santa’s
special picks.
.
Another movie that Santa had to watch and address-
Was that magical one, 2004’s “The Polar Express”.
.
Time was running out, it was about time to go-

But, just one more for Santa, from a long time ago.
.
“It’s A Wonderful Life” in 1946, starring that
George Bailey-
Santa always tried, but, at the end, there were always
so many tears of joy, to see.
.
After wiping his eyes, he set out to ready the reindeer-
To set out on Christmas Eve, with the sky so bright
and clear.
.
Santa Claus was running late-
For he had to catch up on some
old Christmas movies, that he
hadn’t seen, as of late.

The Old Man’s Christmas (2003)

I once knew an elderly man whose eyes shined when he looked back on his childhood holiday memories.

I know that I’ve written about him before but it has been a long time and I think that it is well worth repeating.

.

The man was born in the early 1900’s and the holiday season was not as commercial as it is nowadays. there were

no video games or cd’s to be wished for as they were items that had not been dreamed up yet.

.

But dreams did exist back in those days although they were on a more simple basis. As the boy lay in his bed he

pictured Santa Claus bringing him a bag filled with fruit and candy. it was what he had gotten the year before and

the year before that. Nothing else could possibly come to his mind except the wonderful treats that he had come to expect.

.

The best part of the holiday really was his mothers’ cooking. She’d cook for just about the whole week before the holiday

arrived. Cookies, candies, and pies would be on the menu and throughout the whole house the smell would give away the

idea that the holiday was on the way.

.

Back in those days the out of town relatives would come to the boys’ house and the amount of food would be enormous

as everyone would make sure that there was plenty.

The relatives brought their favorite foods to add to what his mother made. The boy ended up with one huge feast and the

best family gathering each and every year.

That is the part that he remembered and missed the most. The treat bag with the fruit, which included apples, oranges, and

candy was just the icing on the cake.

.

He never really thought to ask for anything for the Christmas holiday because he was always afforded just exactly what he needed.

A wonderful Christmas holiday that left him with a lifetime of wonderful memories. it made his eyes shine back then and kept

them shining as an old man everytime he recollected the story of his childhood.

“A wonderful childhood is the reason-

The old mans’ eyes shined during the holiday season!”
