“Santa’s Surprise Party” (A Christmas Poem from 1908)
“Santa’s Surprise Party” by Gladys Hyatt Sinclair
From Saint Nicholas magazine, December 1908

’Twas a glad Christmas eve, and all over the world,
With reindeer and sleigh dear old Santa had whirled.
No one was forgotten or slighted by him;
Each stocking was bulging and crammed to the brim.
“There!” cried the old saint as he stopped at his door,
“I’ve made all the little ones happy once more!
But the rest of the night will be lonely, I fear;
Why—what is this wonderful racke

“Happy Christmas Time” (A Christmas Poem)
“Happy Christmas Time” by Carolyn Wells
From The Ladies’ Home Journal, December 1922

When the turkey’s on the table and the candles on the tree
I’m jest about as happy as I ever wanta be!

I couldn’t be no happier an’ I don’t wanta try.
I like the parson’s sermon an’ I like the ringin’ chimes;
I like the dressed-up feelin’ that’s around at Christmas times;
But best of all the doin’s is the time, it seems to me,

“Christmas Afternoon” by Robert Benchley (1921)
