Christmas Comes But Once a Year
A Funny Christmas Poem for KidsRate this poem
Christmas comes but once a year.
That’s what they always say.
If it were up to me
it would be Christmas EVERY day.
We’d leave the decorations up
and never take them down.
We’d get an artificial tree
that doesn’t turn to brown.
We’d open presents every day
from August through July,
and all year long we’d feast on
candied yams and pumpkin pie.
The benefits are obvious
but what would be most cool…
we’d get to stay at home all year
and never go to school.
It’s such a perfect fantasy
with just one caveat;
with Christmas every day
we’d all be broke and really fat.
