You’ve made it halfway feeling better or worse,
With a gaping hole in your wallet or purse.
But don’t give up now as there’s much to be done,
There are thirteen more days of Christmassy fun!
As you’re attending events, you’ll no doubt have eaten
Prawn cutlets, arancini, and pies that look beaten.
And then there’s the taxi fares, and gifts for the kids,
So tired you need matchsticks to hold up your eyelids.
It’ll all be over soon with food and the Grinch,
And by then you won’t be feeling the pinch.
So hold on for dear life and keep pushing through
Only 20 more presents for you to accrue!
