The Day Before Christmas Eve

Last minute shopping
and gift wrapping
completing those items
that can be baked and canned
clearing a space under the tree

for all the gifts for the family. 
Tamales are prepared,
ready for the feasts

on Christmas Eve
and for any
guests that come next day.

Telling yourself
you won’t make a fuss
but there is something
about the holiday

that causes a rush
of tradition to be fulfilled 
each year.

Silent night,
Holy night
don’t forget 

why we celebrate.
