Xmas 2019Blog

December 25, 2019 — Earth

Every year, our holiday card features a shot from our travels and every year I use the same clip-art Santa hats and the same elements for an Easter egg or two — because what better time for an Easter egg than Christmas?

And every year we come up with the most corny doggerel we can think up:

When you go to the land of the Swiss
There’s a view you don’t want to miss
The mountain is stately
We admired it greatly —
It led to photographers’ bliss.

With good fortune we feel we’ve been blessed:
Adventure, good times, and success
We make it quite clear
We wish you good cheer
And days of supreme happiness.

Although corny it’s heartfelt.

  2. I laughed when I found Santa and the tree, but then I noticed that even the mountain looks as though it might be wearing a perky Santa hat! All good wishes for a joyous holiday, and a very happy new year, Michael.
