Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

Fuzzy kittens make the holidays even more Yuletidey for me.

Today we sing the praises of December 23rd
Although it’s not a holiday per se
It’s just the day that is the day before the day
Before the day that is the best day in the world

The 24th is Christmas Eve, the 25th is Christmas
And the 26th is Boxing Day and marks the Feast of Stephen
But the 23rd is mostly spent just marking time until the Earth
Rotates away around its axis once again

Today we sing the praises of December 23rd
Though no one else would seem to give a damn
It’s just the day that is the day before the day
Before the day that is the best day in the world

Too late for office parties, and you’re done with “Secret Santa”
But too early to go driving off to Grandma’s through the snow
And metaphorically speaking, it’s the next-to-last minute
So you still have one more shopping day to go

Today we sing the praises of December 23rd
‘Cause if we don’t, nobody ever will
It’s just the day that is the day before the day
Before the day that is the best day in the world
