We’re staying home this Christmas.
We won’t shop at the mall.
We won’t go to department stores
or anywhere at all.
We’ll do our shopping all online
this year and, I assume,
we’re having Christmas dinner
with our relatives on Zoom.
We’ll have a celebration too
with fun and festive cheer.
But that will be on FaceTime, Skype,
and Google Meet this year.
We heard that even Santa Claus
will celebrate this way,
and won’t deliver presents
in his bright-red Santa sleigh.
But there’s no need for us to fret;
we won’t be out of luck.
He said he’ll send our presents
in a brown delivery truck.
