It was so hard to decide the winners of the Christmas poem contest as there were so many great contributions. However, the contest was for a poem to put on your Christmas gift and there were two poems who stood out in the crowd and earned a 1st and 2nd place in the contest. A huge thank you to all participants! You can check out the challenge here!
The winner is *drumroll* Jackie LeBlanc who wrote a poem for a pair of fuzzy toe socks she’s giving for a friend (oops! I hope I didn’t ruin the surprise!) Jackie will receive a secret Christmas gift from Sofi.. I mean Santa. Here’s Jackies winning poem:
Each day, each week, each month, each season…
We’ve become friends and that’s the reason –
Thru weather of rain, snow or heat..
Having you as a friend just can’t be beat!
I care if you’re freezin’ -with ice on your nose –
So I give you this gift,
For your ten little toes!
On an honorable second place is Juliana Palmcook with her ingenious poem about a Christmas gift everyone can give no matter if you’re rich or poor… guess what! Juliana will get a special Christmas greeting in the mail!
My gift cannot be bought,
It doesn’t have a price tag; yet it is priceless,
It will keep you warm on a cold winter day,
It helps chase the blues away,
Although once in awhile you see it at the stores being exchanged,
My gift is free but with arms attached,
If you don’t need it now you can get a rain-check,
There is a rebate but not like you think,
It is yours forever to remember,
I don’t know who could ask for more,because it is really big,
My gift is wrapped with arms,
Can you guess my gift? Hint, it is a 3 letter word…
I hope that rings a jingle bell.
