LETTER: Township has much to do the day before Christmas

A Langley letter writer shares her prose about Township Langley council preparing for Christmas Day.

Dear Editor:

T’was the day before Christmas in Langley Township.

High above the largest tree in Brookswood sat a little Sparrow singing loud and clear “It is The Day Before Christmas there is so much to do” she said with delight and sparkle!

Langley Township was all a Glow with lights, music, and children’s delight!

“What a great time for giving!” shouted Jack with excitement, and with that he started giving turkeys to the less fortunate, and every one of them was tenderly well seasoned by Angie for sure.

Bob travelled from one side of Langley to the other, just to make sure all Langley Township was safe and sound for all in town.

Kim had it all figured out, she put on her best runners, and with that she was out the door, everywhere she jogged she passed along good cheer for one and all.

Blair sat at his desk and with pen in hand and with every letter he did write our Township has the best people in the land!

And this was true he declared.

With all that is magical and mystical of the season Petrina knew everyone could feel and see this when walking in our Township’s parks, schools, and hospital, the beauty, and wonder was everywhere.

While visions of sugar-plums danced in David ‘s head he thought of Peace on earth and good will to all, Charlie was on board so was Michelle, Angie, Bob, Kim, Blair, Petrina, David, and Jack.

Merry Christmas , and peace on earth and goodwill to all!!

Shirley Sawatsky, Langley
