.Letter: ‘Some want an excuse to go have a ball …’

Holidays: the final word

Some go for chocolate, savory and divine,

Some go for whisky, tequila and lime.

Some prefer turkey and some prefer ham,

Some prefer stuffing with strawberry jam.

Some want the morning to come rather quick,

Enthused for their bounty from good ole’ St. Nick.

Some want their stockings to brim with delight,

While some just want warmth on a cold winter’s night.

Some want their presents up under the tree,

While some just want time spent with their family.

Some dream of sunshine while some dream of snow,

Some want the rays of a cool winter’s glow.

Some long for families with whom they can dine,

While some wish to relax alone with their wine.

Some prefer strudels and some prefer cake,

Some prefer pies that entrance when they’re baked.

Some want the cookies while some want the joy,

Some want the eggnog and some want the toys.

Some want an excuse to go have a ball …

Some want the memories, but I want it ALL!

Happy New Year! May you have a beautiful holiday with your loved ones, and may your smiles be filled with the sun, moon and stars.

Scott Harris, Marin
