In the days before Christmas
I couldn’t agree,
As to whether to decorate
And put up a tree.

Should I hang up the garland
And hang up the wreath?
Should I put out two trees
And pile presents beneath?

So why put it up just
To pull it all down?
Why put yourself through it
And make yourself frown?

So, this year I think
I will have just one tree.
A tree full of magic
As soon you will see.

With ornaments special
The children will place.
And each time I will look
With a smile on my face

For there nothing more prized
than a holiday tree that
my grandchildren decorated
Especially for me.
