An Acrostic Christmas to You

C     is for Christmas - it’s not far away.

H     is for holly in my floral display.

R     is for reindeer - Santa’s own special team.

I      is for icing with a good Christmas theme.

S     is for Santa who’ll be coming your way.


  T       is for toys upon Christmas Day.

M     is for mistletoe - come, find some with me.

A     is for angel at the top of the tree.

S     is for stocking - yes, filled up to the top,

My poem’s now finished so it’s here that I stop.
