Brisket roasting on an open fire.

Bubba Frost nipping at your nose.

Yuletide carols being strung on barb wire.

And folks dressed up like so-and-so’s.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe

Are stuck in the mesquite.

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

Will never get to sleep.

They know that Santa’s on his way

Through the coastal Bermuda hay.

And every mother’s child is going to try

To rope and brand reindeers as they fly.

And so I’m offering this friendly phrase

To kiddos from one to a hundred-and-what all.

Although it’s been said so dang many ways,

A very Merry…

O so Merry…

Happy happy…

Holy holy…

Holy Cow Merry…

Merry Christmas to y’all.

That’s Mason.
