    (To the tune of Jingle Bells)

    Christmas time, Christmas time
    Trees are falling down
    Grab your sweats and your coffee mug
    ‘Cause snowflakes ‘gon go around town

    Hey!

    Christmas time, Christmas time
    Trees are falling down
    Once a year a cheery old man
    Could even give you a frying pan

    Homes be flashing lights
    All through the winter nights
    Letters are flying through
    One flew in the zoo

    Presents be sneaking in
    Giving Santa a head spin
    This boy got some money he stole
    Better give this boy some coal

    Hey!

    Christmas time, Christmas time
    Trees are falling down
    Be nice and you won’t get mice
    And maybe a pizza slice

    Hey!

    Christmas time, Christmas time
    Trees are falling down
    Maybe one day you could catch a sleigh
    So you can be on your merry way!

    Hi, I am new to mercenaries101.com and this is my first contest lol. Here is my poem.

    Christmas

    Kids very old or very new
    Have one thing big in common
    They all get very ecstatic
    When they know Christmas is coming!

    They run around and cheer a lot
    And invite all their peers
    They can’t wait for the awesome presents
    And can’t wait to see Santa’s reindeer!

    They decorate their stockings
    And decorate their trees
    They decorate just about everything
    About everything they see!

    All the children cannot sleep
    Because of the big event
    They might keep looking out the window
    To see Santa incase he already went!

  • Alaeabedrabbah

    Oh Santa where are you

    Come bring joy to us, Woo-Hoo

    Christmas is almost here

    And what the kids want from you is clear

    We love the Christmas tree star

    shining bright like a brand new car

    It lets us feel together

    No matter with whoever

    Sitting by the fire place, how warm

    Protected from the mini snow storm

    Waiting for Santa to send us our gifts

    Gee, waiting for them is making us stiff

    We made you some cookies

    Don’t worry, we don’t bake like rookies

    We know you will love their taste

    And you will know the dough was not a waste

    We wait for you every year

    Watching you fly on your reindeer

    Flying above us to make sure we are well

    Oh Santa you are so swell

    After Thanksgiving diner

    Wow was that turkey a winner

    We get ready for decorating our home

    Or maybe visit granny back in Rome

    I know this poem is long

    Wow I had no clue

    But at least I get to say

    Merry Christmas too you

    So never stop loving

    Especially in this season

    And make someone happy

    Trust me, you don’t need a reason

    -Dedicated to this special event of the year-
    The Time of Winter is back!

    When there are lots of gifts

    And we gotta them stack!

    Santa Clause come through the chimney,

    Not caring whether it’s Dusty or Windy.

    Just because he likes to give gifts to children.

    Going to every house one by one!

    This season is full of stuff to do,

    Coming right before the season to say “Boo”!!

    “what did you get?” every child says,

    I know how beautiful are these days!

    Churches are decorated with great pleasure,

    We just get gifts, and do leisure and leisure!

    Decorating the X-Mas tree is the best job I find,

    On this day, I go and serve the children those who are blind.

    Wishes from chaps and pals we get,

    This is the best season I do I bet, Yes, I do I bet..!

    Winter Time, Full of Wonders
    The games become plentiful, from Treasures to Plunders.
    Caroling in the Streets with Friends Galore
    To waiting for those gifts to get to your front door
    Epic snowball fights seen in many places
    Just make sure your snowball pet doesn’t bruise any faces .__.
    Sipping eggnog and watching TV
    Seeing other’s houses with decorations as far as the eye can see.
    All in all this festive year for the gamers will be grand.
    Which all started with one jolly man.

    One little star on the top of the tree,

    Two little presents underneath for me,
    Three silver ropes twisted around the tree,

    Four colored lights shining prettily,

    Five shining balls flowing silvery.

    Oh, what a sight for use to see!

    I made a Christmas wish for you,

    For a holiday full of pleasure,

    Friends and family all around,

    And memories to treasure.

    May this holiday season

    leave you with precious memories
    A Christmas filled with love and light

    perfect gifts, delicious foods,

    love and joy all around.

    A New Year with continuing blessings

    friends, family, good work, great fun,

    and delightful surprises.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

    ~from your wizard friend Hunter and pirate friend Arthur~

    A Christmas memory

    Christmas just around the corner
    Waiting for it with eager
    Then it starts to snow
    I love it you know

    Last year it was fun
    I put home-made cheese bun
    on a table nearby door
    Santa Claus, it was for

    I left him a list
    Of the things he had missed
    Last year when he visited me
    Gifted me without asking fee

    I sprinkled some sand
    Of a very coarse band
    So that it’ll be skid proof
    For sleigh to land on roof

    I wake up at Christmas morning
    Found a parcel with note saying
    Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas
    The bun was so delicious

    Snowing Jingle
    Under tree there be presents
    Children fill with joy
    An afternoon breeze
    expels cold air, there be
    wizards play snow
    It is time of joys
    full of hoped, full of goodness
    We all love Christmas

  • Scarlet Owl

    Christmas Time is finally here,
    It only comes but once a year.
    And it’s a time to spread good cheer,
    To those we love and hold so dear.
    Christmas is a time for joy
    Is a time for happiness for every boy and girls
    A time for family a time for friends
    A time for peace on earth and good wills to men
    Christmas Time is a time to pray,
    Put love and kindness on display.
    Show compassion along the way,
    Christmas Time should be everyday.

  • Jordan Goldblossom

    This, festive time of year,
    Is hot and humid down here,
    Too sunny to go outside to play,
    So inside in AC is where I must stay,
    My computer is always turned on,
    And Wizard101 is always logged on,
    I try my luck with a yuletide pack,
    Hoping to find that Christmas gear I lack,
    My house, I’ll attempt to decorate,
    This is the way to celebrate,
    Again and again my life will be questioned,
    But I’ll just think this is life of a legend,
    This is how Wizards spend their yuletide,
    And we will confess it with honor and pride

    Wizard101 isn’t it great,
    Fighting monsters and creatures all day,
    Merle Ambrose-good isn’t he,
    will accompany you in all of your wizards studies!
    It’s christmas time gather everyone,
    in front of the christmas three
    lets light it up with spirit
    and little bit of magic too
    in this fun universe,
    you can join too!

    A Wizardly Christmas

    The Christmas spirit is in the air,
    and presents are being sold.
    Many Wizards have love and laughter to share,
    but everyone is excited, despite the cold.

    Magically drifting through the open sky,
    are Wizards on Candy Cane Mounts.
    There are also sleighs with reindeer that fly,
    and new Noelephants sold for Crowns.

    Every tree in all of the Spiral,
    is covered in holiday decorations,
    and even though trimming Bartleby took a while,
    there is still time for more celebrations.

    Meals full of fresh Crab Apple Cider,
    with a main course of smoked Piggle meat,
    make everyone’s stomach feel wider,
    yet still have room for a holiday treat.

    Falling from the sky is white fresh snow,
    collecting slowly on the ground.
    Evil Snowmen come as the wind begins to blow,
    and they are actually entertaining to have around.

    The holidays will unfortunately soon come to a close,
    and all celebrations will cease,
    but everyone still knows,
    that Christmas will live on eternally!

  • Tarlac SummerBloom

    The snow is falling
    Christmas is calling
    Presents under the tree
    Oh whatever I see

    Santa is finally here
    I can hear everyone cheer
    Cookies and milk
    Oh dear look at my jeer

    What a wonderful time of year
    Best of all I say
    Family and friends here
    Oh the best time of the year

  • john mardeny

    If Wizards’ could make my wish come true,
    I’d make a Solstice wish just for you!
    One million crowns in each and every pocket,
    Gurtok Circlet and complimentary locket.
    A fancy palace floating with stars on high,
    your choice of mounts on which to fly!
    Last thing I wish, if no crowns nor gear,
    Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Christmas time is the time of joy.
    with friends ,family,and some toys.

    Where people come together on one special day
    but i only wish this moment lasted till may.

    Every year i sit by the campfire with people i love by my side.
    i feeling comes in my heart that can’t be denied.

    Some people say Christmas is about the presents, cookies, and drinks.
    but i think it’s about the memories you have ,that always stick.

    Christmas, Christmas oh so dear,

    Santa is on his way here.

    He is supposed to come tonight,

    when the clock strikes midnight.

    I made sure to leave chocolate chip,

    on the table with his name on a slip.

    I sure hope I don’t get coal,

    That is my main goal.

    I’ve been staying up all night,

    to come out when the time is right.

    To maybe catch a glimpse,

    Of the big man himself!

    But none of that matters,

    I just hope my family can make it here alright!
