A Visit To Saint Nicholas12/17/2012 at 12:00 AM AKST


‘Twas the week before Christmas and out in North Pole
There were many things to do for your mind, body and soul!
With events and displays, great shopping and eats
We knew that North Pole would be full of fine treats!

We’d make that short drive out to Santa Claus House
To see old Saint Nick and his beautiful spouse.
When we get there we’ll see each of the reindeer
And join in as they celebrate their 60th year!

The children are eager to see “Christmas in Ice,”
So Mama and I didn’t have to think twice!
I have to admit, even I get excited
In the late afternoon when the sculptures are lighted!

Outside on the snow there will be sled dog races
International World Champions running the paces.
These teams don’t pull sleighs, but oh how they fly.
You’ll be thrilled as they pass in the blink of an eye!

When it’s time to warm up we’ll find a nice place to dine
International? American? Perhaps a fine wine?
Wherever we choose I know it’ll be great
I do as my mother says, “Eat everything on your plate!”

‘Tis the season to celebrate with goodwill and cheer
Visit North Pole for the holidays this time of year
If at present you can’t make it to this friendly town
Anytime is perfect when it’s Christmas year ‘round!
