Here it is, that time of year,

I had trouble keeping up with it a few short years ago ,
But I’m here to tell you all today that I’m still on the go,

On Boxing Day, 26 December, following the sentimentally romanticised Christmas Truce of 1914, the killing resumed and continued until 11 November 1918.

To punctuate our living year.

including a trip to Humpty Doo.

But Toyland Corporation wanted a share
Of his global market reaching everywhere!
