special cooking time
preparing for many guests
celebration time

it’s the best time of the year
tasty, rich enticing food
but not for a slim waistline

  2. Slim waistline and Christmas are not synonymous! That’s for sure! 😀 I really liked your poem of Christmas food celebration and the final seven line…always interesting to learn of new (to me) poetic forms. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, Elsie! 🎄❤️
