'Tis the evening of Christmas
And all through the town
Toy inventories
In stores are way down.

Parents who yesterday
Bubbled with cheer
Are grateful that Christmas
Comes only once every year.

Into their snug, warm beds
Little girls and boys fall,
Most of them thoroughly
Confused by it all.

Safely back at the North Pole
Santa says, "I swear, that's it.
Let some other fool do it.
I've had it. I quit."

His wife tucks him in bed
And strokes his hot brow.
She coos into his ear,
"Dear Santa, now, now

What is Christmas without you?"
"Yes, yes," he agrees. That's true.
And I know you love Christmas.
All right. I'll do it for you."

So rest easy young children,
Santa will come back because
Mrs. Claus loves Christmas,
And Santa loves Mrs.Claus.

Cute!

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
