As the snow gently fell Squirrel and Hare pulled up their hoods
As they merrily made their way skipping through the woods
For this is the night they look forward to each year
It’s Mr Stags famous festive feast of good cheer!
The smell of spices and joyful carols they could hear
And also see fairy light lanterns flickering as they drew near
Garlands of bells and mistletoe hanging from every tree
Such delights through the windows they could now see
Badger and Fox were handing out wooden toys
To the children running around with such festive joy
Gleaming baubles and gingerbread, fir cones and stars
Tawney owl handing out jellied sweets from frosted jars
The table was bursting with juicy berries and golden pies
Oh, I hope our bellies will be bigger than our eyes!
And even though its chaos and the place will be in a muddle
The evening always ends with cosy fireside Christmas Cuddles xx
