Jingle Bells

**Much more smiling involved if actually sung**
Dashing through the sand
In a flip-flop sort of way
Over the couples we step
Laughing all the way
In the Southern Hemisphere
Christmas lights displayed
What fun it is to rush and pack
into the micro bus.

Jingle Bells
Jingle Bells
Jingle Chilean style
Hot and humid
Are the words
During my last month here
Jingle Bells
Jingle Bells
Jingle Chilean style
Waiting for Santa Clause
On the ocean shores.

About two months ago
This Christmas-ness began
Crazy street vendors
shrieking here and there,
“Oh, buy your kid a gift!”
This commercialism
Simply does not change
Not even culturally.


So, dashing through the sand
I’m loving my last month!!
Yet staying focused
On the true reason
Because Christmas indeed
Is about something more
So continue passing on
the JOY, the PEACE, and the LOVE
