Galactic Greetings

On Saturn there’s no “Season’s Greetings!”
Neptune, no “Noel!”
On Mercury no “Merry Christmas!”
Uranus as well.

On Pluto there’s no “Happy New Year!”
Mars, no “Ho Ho Ho!”
No “Jingle Bells” on Jupiter.
No Venus “Let it Snow!”

Those planets have no Christmas,
which is why it’s said with mirth,
“A Merry Christmas one and all,
we wish you Peace on Earth.”
