"NO PEANUTS FOR SANTA"

T'WAS THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS,
IT WAS STARTING TO SNOW,
THE REINDEER WERE HITCHED
AND ALL READY TO GO.

THE ELVES WERE STILL PACKING
THE LAST OF THE GIFTS,
WHEN SANTA GOT ITCHY
AND STARTED TO SNIFF.

HE HAD SPOTS ON HIS TUMMY,
THE ELVES HEARD HIM WHEEZE.
MRS. CLAUS CALLED THE MEDICS,
‘OH DO HURRY, PLEASE!’

THE MEDICS ARRIVED
AND SPRANG INTO ACTION.
THE DOCTORS DECLARED,
"THIS IS A REACTION!"

NOW THINK VERY CAREFULLY,
WHAT DID YOU MUNCH?
CAN YOU REMEMBER
WHAT YOU HAD FOR LUNCH?

SANTA PONDERED AND SCRATCHED
AT THE HIVES ON HIS BELLY.
AND THEN HE REMEMBERED,
PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY!

THEY GAVE SANTA EPI,
ANTIHISTAMINES TOO,
AND THEN THEY TOLD SANTA,
"NO PEANUTS FOR YOU!"

THE NEWS WAS ANNOUNCED
BY T.V.AND FAXES,
THAT SANTA CLAUS SUFFERS
FROM ANAPHYLAXIS

THE WORD TRAVELED QUICKLY
FROM LONDON TO MAINE
NO ARACHIS! NO GOOBERS!
AND NO “MAY CONTAINS”.

PLEASE READ THE LABELS
ON COOKIES AND SWEETS
THAT YOU LEAVE FOR OL’ SANTA...
ONLY PEANUT-FREE TREATS!

THE REINDEER WERE READY,
THE SLEIGH WAS ALL PACKED
AND AROUND SANTA’S BELLY
WAS A RED EPI-PACK.

"HI-HO" SANTA YELLED
AS THE REINDEER TOOK FLIGHT.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

Rudolf the red-nosed Reindeer
Had a very drippy nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say "it blows!"

All of the other reindeer
Used to think that he was ill
They never knew poor Rudolph
Just ran out of Benedryll
:lol:

Pam, I think you are the poet laureate of the Allergic Living boards. :D

Speaking of Santa and his entourage, may they be good to you and yours.
Safe and very merry Christmas everybody!!

I'm ready to begin the cooking onslaught. Crank up the music, and away we go.
Ho, ho, ho. :wink:
