The Twelve Laws of Santa Claus ~ Christopher Hogan Lay

Gather ‘round everyone.
Get comfortable, I insist.
I have a story to tell,
You won’t want to miss.

Kris Kringle wants Christmas Spirit,
For the world all year round.
And he needs every one of us,
To help lift it off the ground.

All kinds of lists I’m sure you know,
That old St. Nick has made.
But I’m about to share,
The most important of his trade.

So let’s begin our reading,
For there’s no time to pause.
Allow me to reveal to you,
The Twelve Laws of Santa Claus.

Twelve (12): LOVE
Santa’s list begins with love,
Counting down from twelve to one.
Love yourself first before,
Sharing your heart with anyone.

Eleven (11): BE KIND
To be kind, says Santa,
Is such a wonderful thing.
Kindness to each other,
Can ease life’s hurts and stings.

Ten (10): CHOOSE GOOD
Choose a good attitude,
A wise decision it’s told.
Making any occasion,
Worth its weight in gold.

Nine (9): PLAY
Play! Make a game,
Out of any old chore.
Enjoy what you’re doing,
And it’s never a bore.

Eight (8): BE GRATEFUL
To be thankful or grateful,
Is Law Number Eight.
Doing so helps you feel,
Full and great.

Seven (7): IMAGINE
Imagine all things possible.
Creativity is key.
To show where life may take you,
And who you’ll grow to be.

Six (6): BRING PEACE
Be silent. Shhh! Listen!
There’s no need to shout.
When you are still and peaceful,
You will never miss out.

Five (5): LEARN
Grow from your mistakes.
Learn new things each day.
If you don’t succeed,
Try another way.

Four (4): BE PATIENT
Patience is a virtue.
Bet you’ve heard that before.
Waiting gets us ready,
For what the future has in store.

Three (3): GIVE
Give a gift of yourself.
Help out! Lend a hand.
Santa’s Law Number Three,
Keeps you high in demand.

Two (2): BRING JOY
Bring joy! Make friends.
Brighten up someone’s day.
Peace, Love and Joy:
That’s the Santa Claus way.

And at last dear friends,
As this list nears its close,
Can you guess Santa’s first Law?
What is it do you suppose?

One (1): BELIEVE!
Believe in yourself,
There’s no stopping you.
Believe in your dreams,
And Santa Claus too.

Christopher Hogan Lay
