a Day to Celebrate

Monday December 17th was special for me

as I lunched with friends down by the sea


We ate and chatted with wondrous views

enjoying each other, dressed in vibrant hues


Presents were distributed at morning tea

stinky smelly stuff made us giggle with glee


All 43 agreed to celebrate seventeen

soda, beer or wine but no Jim Beam


Bus used but booze was in moderation

great company ensured animated conversation


We’d gathered today fully aware

that non believers stockings would be bare


With Brutus as our guide

for we know he’s never lied


We congregated on a different date

traditions should never be sedate!


How did you celebrate the seventeenth?


  1. I’m not sure “celebrate” is the correct word to use for a day spent doing administrative and house work but I’m off to Paris tomorrow for a few days of fun. Does that count?
