"December the first" by Lauren McBride & Steven Wittenberg Gordon

December the first
Thanksgiving yields to Christmas
ornaments unboxed

--Lauren McBride & Steven Wittenberg Gordon

McBride's Notes:  It seems the celebration of Christmas keeps creeping earlier and earlier on the calendar. I like to wait until December 1st to clip my nativity pin on my jacket and start getting out Christmas decorations, which makes the 1st a special day for me.

Gordon’s Notes:  Even though I do not celebrate Christmas per se, I still take great pleasure in the light, hope, and song that Christmas brings to the darkest days of the year.  I enjoyed collaborating with Lauren on this one.
