The Night Before Chickmas…

It was The Night Before Chickmas and all through The Coop
The chicklets were playing with their hula-hoops
Some stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Chicklaus soon would be there
The chicklets were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of cornbread danced fast in their heads
The hens in their kerchiefs, the roosters in caps, didn’t have time for a long winter’s nap
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter they ran to the window to see what was the matter
And what to their wondering eyes did appear but a miniature sleigh and one tiny reindeer
As they drew in their heads they heard a new sound and saw St. Chicklaus, when they turned around
There were gifts for the chicklets, the hens and the cats, the dogs and the roosters, the horses and bats. The cows and the goats, the birds and the ducks, even the pigs and the squirrels were in luck. All were included, it’s always that way, so everyone there had a wonderful day
The chicklets are happy, their hearts are aglow, they’re all very grateful, they want you to know.  But parties need planning*, there are things to be done, so Happy Chickmas to you, they hope you had fun.


*The big Chickmas party will be held on Chickmas Eve.  So the chicklets are busy getting ready.  They shall return but this is the end of their Night Before Chickmas story.  ❤

  1. Love it! My daughter is beside herself excited. She’s been running through the house yelling “Christmas, Christmas, Christmas!” at the top of her lungs. I don’t mind a few more weeks to get ready. So much to do!

  2. So much fun. I bet they will be working their feathers off planning their big party. I will miss them but am really looking forward to their party.

  4. Perfect:) Everyone sends chirps and peeps.

  5. Absolutely loved it 🙂 Can’t wait for the party!

  6. They are, believe me. Between the party and the poetry readings…I can’t catch a break.
