    Our Christmas poem print takes a witty, affectionate look at what goes on in a family at Christmas, from partying to eating far too much!

    This unframed A4 Christmas print makes the perfect gift for a busy mum, family or hostess. It also makes a fabulous seasonal decoration.

    It was written by Bespoke Verse poet (and Oxford graduate!) Joanna Miller, who has won lots of awards for her accessible and clever relationship-themed poems.

    Whether it's envelope licking, mistletoe kissing or Grandpa snoring, everyone will recognise the scenes described in 'What is Christmas?'

    For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a two line personalised message at the bottom. We can also frame the print for you - see below for details.

    What is Christmas? wording:

    It’s wrapping & sticking & envelope licking

    It’s hosting & toasting & turkey roasting

    It’s cocktail drinking, smiling & winking

    It’s baking & dishing & mistletoe kissing.

    It’s nativity playing & going awaying

    It’s telly viewing & nonstop chewing

    It’s writing & thanking & empty the banking

    It’s paper ripping & double cream whipping.

    It’s tree decorating & staying up lating

    It’s bickering, laughing, hat, glove, & scarfing

    It’s singing & ringing, planning & bringing

    It’s stocking filling & lots of good willing.

    It’s service going & possibly snowing

    It’s hugging & squeezing, talking & teasing

    It’s greeting, competing & all too fleeting

    It’s present admiring & logs on the firing.

    It’s cracker banging & paperchain hanging

    It’s champagne pouring & Grandpa snoring

    It’s monopoly cheating & Quality Streeting

    It’s shopping & bopping & parties non-stopping...

    That’s what makes a Christmas!
