The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t

Vixen had a nasty cold,

Do you know this tale?

The team was now in danger,

Could Christmas truly fail?


Santa shook his head in the woe.

And Rudolph gave a snort.

Blitzen shed a reindeer tear,

And Dasher did retort:


“Never will it ever happen …

That Christmas will not be!

There is no greater crisis,

That I could ever see!”


Prancer then did prance around,

And Dancer joined his friend.

Comet posed a quiet query:

Could Christmas this year end?


Donner simply stood and stared,

When Cupid asked a question.

“What if there really is a cure,

Perhaps a kind suggestion . . .?”


“Join your hands around the world,

And look to the sky above.

Fill your minds with only peace

And fill your hearts with love!”


All the children around their homes,

In parks and public places.

Gathered in their multitude,

And prayed for Christmas graces!


Tis the time of miracles,

A time when prayers are heard.

Soon there was a mighty sneeze,

And lo our Vixon stirred!


Our hero soon was very well,

Because we all behaved!

Joy erupted everywhere,

Christmas had been saved!
