December 18th—7 days until Christmas—Too Many Sweets

I hope this poem I wrote isn’t happening to you.

THE FLAVORS OF CHRISTMAS 

I flavor my poem

with candy canes,

and tree-shaped cookies,

big chocolate balls,

then add some fudge,

and peanut brittle,

four popcorn chains,

a pudding, a pie,

and a Santa Claus cake. 

It tastes so yummy,

I gobble it up.

 

Now all that’s left

of my Christmas poem

is a belly ache.

If you don’t have a belly ache yet, perhaps you’d like to make this peppermint bark.  It’s the elves’ favorite candy and why not when it looks as yummy as this.

Remember, everything in moderation.  That way you’ll enjoy a stress-free, love-filled Holiday.
