Around Christmastime
Catalina Elvander

People
are nicer
than usual
greeting everyone
Around
Christmastime                          

Stores are scattered
with happy shoppers
choosing gifts for everyone
on their list
Around Christmastime

Lights
twinkle brightly
outside
people’s houses
Around Christmastime

People gather
inside houses
talking
chattering
hugging
smiling
Filled with
happiness
to be
together
with family
Around Christmastime
