FEMINIST FRIDAY – MRS. SANTA CLAUS

In the spirit of the Christmas Season, I am dedicating this post to the hardworking and often overlooked woman from the North Pole:

MRS. SANTA CLAUS

Who feeds the reindeer all their hay?
Who wraps the gifts and packs the sleigh?
Who’s helping Santa every day?
Mrs. Santa Claus

Who keeps his red suit looking nice?
Who does he turn to for advice?
Who gives the brownies all their spice?
Mrs. Santa Claus

She pitter patters all around the workshop
The whole year long
Amid the happy clatter of the workshop
She sings a merry, merry Christmas song

Who reads the notes from girls and boys?
Turns in the order for their toys
Fills every heart with wondrous joys
Mrs. Santa Claus

She pitter patters all around the workshop
The whole year long
Amid the happy clatter of the workshop
She sings a merry, merry Christmas song

Who reads the notes from girls and boys?
Turns in the order for their toys
Fills every heart with wondrous joys
Mrs. Santa Claus
Mrs. Santa Claus

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  2. On Christmas Eve, the Sleigh will be packed, the reindeer fed. There is much work to do and Mrs Santa Claus schedule is tight .She will visit each household before the first light. She will have a sack with toys to grant all wishes.The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes.
    She will fill all the stockings and not leave a track. Merry Christmas to you and family. 🙂

  3. This is WONDERFULLY clever, Bernadette – and totally new to me. As a small child, I always felt bad that Mrs. C. never got to ride along (early feminist leanings, even then). 🙂

    After reading these lyrics I have NO problems understanding why not – she was pooped! I’ll bet she could barely remain upright to wave Santa off as he rode out of sight before she tottered back inside to settle down for HER long winter’s nap.

    In a similar spirit, please scroll down the sidebar of my blog to the “most recent 35 posts” until you come to “Another Visit from St. What’s-his-Name” – my [meant to be] annual reposting of the ADD-version of ‘Twas the Night Before.

    IN FACT, I’m going to make it easy by going back to add a link here, so watch for a ping you can click.

    It’s about time Mrs. C. got a bit of glory & acknowledgment – especially if the ADD version turns out to be on target!
