Christmas cheer

Every year, about this time
To bring some Christmas cheer
We get some pastry and some jam
And bake, as we haven't all year

I like mince pies, no one else does
So jam tarts are what we make
Small ones, medium ones, some in between
And some too massive to bake

It's not the result that really matters
It's the baking at Christmas time
We'd all be short of festive cheer
If you couldn't smell jam tarts round mine

I am not a fan of mince pies either...but I am sure I would enjoy the happiness of eating jam tarts! Hope you had a good Christmas, Emma.

it is the doing it together that makes it special...that is where the memories are made....but if they do come out they are good eats as well...smiles.
