Take this stocking and stuff it

It’s coming up to that time of year that I so love… Christmas time. I love the decorations, the pepperminty eggnog, the dinners.. I love the sprinkle of snow on the still green grass and the kids’ growing hysteria as every sleep brings Christmas closer. Parents, as you look groggily into the bathroom mirror before the sun rises on a weekday, be advised that Christmas is closer than it appears. Before you know it, Christmas will be knocking, with all its sloppy, drunken overabundance, on your door ( like a favourite aunt), and the kids will be out of their minds with excitement.

If you help Santa stuff stockings or mail Christmas cards, think poetry this holiday season… you’ll find me and my words at the Dartmouth Farmers’ Market tomorrow and the Halifax Seaport Market on Sunday. Hope to see you there!
