In order to get us all in a holiday mood, I thought it would be fun to share llama Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa/Holiday stories and carols. I know we all have our favorites, but try to choose your top two or three.
The Llama Who Stole Christmas - Part I
Down in Llama-ville
Liked Christmas a lot...
But the Grinch,
Who lived just North of Llama-ville,
The Grinch hated Christmas!
The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be that his head wasn't screwed on quite right.
It could be, perhaps, that his hoofs were too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
Whatever the reason,
His heart or his hoofs,
He stood there on Christmas Eve, hating the Llamas,
Staring down from his cave with a sour, Grinchy frown
At the warm lighted windows below in their town.
For he knew every llama down in llama-ville beneath
Was busy now, hanging a mistleoe wreath.
"And they're hanging their stockings!" he snarled with a sneer.
"Tomorrow is Christmas! It's practically here!"
Then he growled, with his grinch fingers nervously drumming,
"I MUST find a way to keep Christmas from coming!"
For, tomorrow, he knew...
...All the llama girls and boys
Would wake up bright and early. They'd rush for their toys!
And then! Oh, the noise! Oh, the noise! Noise! Noise! Noise!
That's one thing he hated! The NOISE! NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!
Then the llamas, young and old, would sit down to a feast.
And they'd feast! And they'd feast!
And they'd FEAST! FEAST! FEAST! FEAST!
They would start on llama-pudding, and rare llama-roast-beast
Which was something the Grinch couldn't stand in the least!
They'd do something he liked least of all!
Every llama down in llama-ville, the tall and the small,
Would stand close together, with Christmas bells ringing.
They'd stand hoof in hoof. And the llamas would start singing!
They'd sing! And they'd sing!
AND they'd SING! SING! SING! SING!
And the more the Grinch thought of the Llama-Christmas-Sing
The more the Grinch thought, "I must stop this whole thing!
"Why for fifty-three years I've put up with it now!
I MUST stop Christmas from coming!
