It is the week before Christmas and all through the town,
Very few people realize what is coming down.
One tree can be seen at our nearby large mall
It's not really a tree, but at least it's quite tall.
Covered in plastic candy, and circles and bows,
And cone-shaped and colorful, it even quite glows.
Metro has some tunes that it plays as you shop
But it's only three songs and they don't ever stop.
How many times can you hear the same Christmas song
Before you go crazy.....but don't get me wrong...

Christmas in China is not that bad
And there are many things for which I am glad
The weather is great, high teens every day
No snow to shovel leaves more time to play.
Friday off this week and only four days again next week
Leaves us more destinations to seek.
Party on Christmas day for those of us here
And our trip to the tropics for New Years draws near.
A week or two later we will be on the run
For more traveling, beaches, sun and fun
Leaving Wuhan for five weeks again
Is never something that involves a lot of pain.

So thanks to everyone for reading this little blog.
And enjoy the holiday season and that glass of egg nog.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
