Christmas At The MERCANTILE Mall

‘Twas a few days before Christmas when all through the mall

Vintage ornaments were waiting

To brighten your hall.


The Santa hats were hung from the rafters with care 

Oh my goodness 

They’re so high!

How’d they get them up there?


I turned every corner

I searched every nook

And Christmas was everywhere

You should come take a look.


Through the end of December

They’re having a sale

On Frosty the Snowman, 

“Noel” for your yard


On ornaments

Stockings

And trees 

Big and small.


Now as I was leaving

I spied an old sign

A favorite of many,

Certainly mine.


And what did it say?

That happy old sign

It reminded us all

No matter our age … to …

“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!”
