Christmas Limericks

Today I offer up something a little different. Here are some limericks using lines from famous Christmas carols or poems. Happy holidays and enjoy!

The North Pole is bustle and noise
As Santa and those he employs,
Prepare for the day
By loading the sleigh
With gifts for the good girls and boys.
The children are filled with delight,
Because Santa’s about to take flight.
“Merry Christmas” he said
As he flew overhead,
“To all and to all a good night”.
Our shopping’s complete with no qualms,
To charity, we’ve given our alms.
No task left undone,
Christmas night has begun.
Silent night, holy night, all is calm.
The night air is crisp and combining
With planets and moon now aligning
For a wondrous sight,
It’s O Holy night
And a sky filled with stars brightly shining.
When the wind in the trees starts to blow
And you hear the leaves rustling below,
Then a chill in the air
Says it’s time to declare
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
The work had been planned by committee
To make all the sidewalks look pretty.
Dressed in holiday style
They bring out a smile,
Now it’s Christmas time in the city.
It happens this time of the year,
We see someone special appear.
Keep close watch tonight
And you’ll see him in flight,
It’s Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer.
A blanket of snow fell anew
And the backseat is perfect for two.
With this night so sublime
Now’s the right time
For a sleigh ride together with you.
If we wait, we would be remiss
In wishing good tidings for this,
Holiday of lights
And a magical night.
We wish you a merry Christmas.
As the Sun slowly works its way down
The excitement is felt all around.
We’ve waited a year
Now Christmas is here
And Santa is coming to town.
