Climate-friendly Festivities

At Christmas time,

When we eat and drink too much,

Can we think for a moment,

About the wonderful world?

Do we need to wrap presents

In acres of packaging?

Will it make Christmas any less special

If our presents go unwrapped?

Let’s enjoy time together

Using trains, buses and bikes,

Cut down on the traffic,

And avoid taking flight.

Spend time at home

Enjoying your family time,

Use a little less energy,

Don’t order everything online.

Make things and share things,

Sing songs and watch films,

Think of the climate,

And have a lovely, climate-friendly holiday.
