Christmas songs are all around and those catchy tunes keep getting stuck in my head. So I thought I’d have a little fun and create a poem out of my favourite lyrics. Read on for the result – and see if you can guess the songs.

Christmas song medley

Between the radio and my Christmas playlist on repeat, I’ve been surrounded by festive lyrics lately. In spare moments, I’ve been making a note of favourite songs and lines, and then last night I sat down in front of my laptop to bring them all together. Here’s the result:

Together At Christmas

It’s Christmas time;
there’s no place I’d rather be.
All the lights are shining,
loved ones are near
– the prettiest sight to see.

Thank you for the year,
your love and understanding.
Let’s join together;
I can’t wait to see those faces.
Let the Christmas spirit ring.

Tonight thank God.
Let your heart be light.
Look to the future now,
the most wonderful time…
May your days be merry and bright.
