C ookies and milk are under the tree
H olly and lights are over the door
R udolph is going to fly
I ce and snow: get ready to play!
S anta is coming down the chimney
T he Christmas tree is full of stars
M any families are eating together
A nd children are opening their presents
S aying, “Merry Christmas!”
