A White Christmas?

Most people dream of a Christmas with lots of fresh white snow

Falling from the sky,

But what about places where, at Christmas, hot winds blow?

Places where ‘a White Christmas’ is all a lie?

We never wake to see

Snow outside our door

The most we’ll get will be

A rather heavy downpour

Instead winter scarves and gloves,

We’ll put on wide-brimmed hats,

And set off to see the ones we love,

To houses, homes and flats,

We may not have a ‘White Christmas’

Not that we want it that badly,

But in the end, for all of us,

Christmas is about family.
