‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the green house [1]
“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 [2]!
But they knew they still wanted a green holiday [3]
So they prepared to celebrate thoughtfully – they could do it in just 1 day!

The youngest in the family logged on to Inhabitat.com [5]
For 5 easy green holiday tips [6] to show dad and mom
They read all of the helpful hints [3] and once they got the gist
It was a piece of cake to put together some green last-minute gifts [7]

They scoured through their pockets and found only dimes
So some made DIY gifts [9] and gave gifts of time [10]
Instead of wasteful paper they used festive cloth [8] and tape [11]
And to warm themselves up, they sat by their eco-friendly fireplace [12]

After all their green gifts [13] were wrapped and ready to give
They came up with green Christmas tree alternatives [14]
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 [15]!

Then Santa pulled up in his eco-sleigh [16] – what a crazy sight!
And said “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a green night.”
