‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the green house
“We’re not ready for Christmas yet!” the whole family groused
They’d all been too busy working and living
Seems like only a day had passed since Thanksgiving!
But they knew they still wanted a green holiday
So they prepared to celebrate thoughtfully – they could do it in just 1 day!
The youngest in the family logged on to Inhabitat.com
For 5 easy green holiday tips to show dad and mom
They read all of the helpful hints and once they got the gist
It was a piece of cake to put together some green last-minute gifts
They scoured through their pockets and found only dimes
So some made DIY gifts and gave gifts of time
Instead of wasteful paper they used festive cloth and tape
And to warm themselves up, they sat by their eco-friendly fireplace
After all their green gifts were wrapped and ready to give
They came up with green Christmas tree alternatives
When they realized how much soda they’d drunk, they knew what they’d do
– They assembled a tree made of 400 cans of Mountain Dew!
Then Santa pulled up in his eco-sleigh – what a crazy sight!
And said “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a green night.”
