Little red hats, singlets and shorts
Walking in thongs along the port.
Standing together in candlelight
Caroling with friends into the night.
Raising a glass and spreading cheer
Fingers cling to ice cold beers.
Shrimp skewers sizzle on the grill
Accompanied by sautéed krill.
Southern climes can be a lot to bear
When gathering for an English fare.
Hot roast turkey with all the trimmings
Some veg but lots of stuffing.
Feeling the heat inside and out
That’s what our Christmas is all about.
