The Night Before Christmas Eve HubNugget

KoffeeKlatch Gals Files

Twas the night before Christmas Eve and all through HubLand,

Nothing was going the way anyone planned.

The decorations were in boxes, the tree it was bare,

And wherever you looked no spirit was there.

Maddie was tired and Patty was bummed,

The whole krewe was wishing that Christmas was done.

Ennelle and RedElf were not purring at all,

They snarled and they hissed at shadows on the wall.

Ripplemaker and ladyjane were fighting over tape,

Oh what a gigantic mess they would make.

The Christmas wrap was wrinkled and torn and thrown in a wad,

It was laying right there where everyone trod.

Simone and KKG were looking for the to-do list,

they just couldn't find it, it's like it didn't exist.

Something landed on the bare tree chuckling with glee,

It was funny and blue, what could it be?

The tree toppled over and up he did jump,

And landed on his feet with a great big thump.

"I'm Jason your angel for Christmas this year,

It's time to pull yourselves together and find you some cheer."

The girls they all stared, they giggled and gawked,

"What are you doing in a dress? they merrily mocked.

"I know you're exhausted, you've worked hard all year,

There's people depending on everyone here.

What's the matter with you, I don't understand,

You don't even have your tree in a stand.

It's just not like you, you're always so jolly

Where the heck are your decorations

and your Christmas holly?

It looks like the Grinch that stole Christmas has gotten to you,

Give me a minute to think what we can do.

I've got it he said with a nod and a wink,

Christmas music is the answer, or so I do think."

With a wave of his wand and a beating of wings,

The room filled with music you couldn't help but sing.

The girls grew so merry as they all tapped their toes,

The magical music chased away all their woes.

They hung all the lights and the ornaments with care,

On the poor little tree that had formally been bare.

The gifts they were sorted and wrapped quick as a wink,

And the to-do list appeared right there on the sink.

The girls were delighted and full of good cheer,

They finally were glad that Christmas Day was growing so near.

They looked at the room and were really quite happy,

A moment ago it had really looked crappy.

What had been the matter they didn't quite know,

It must have been the Grinch that had filled them with woe.

They now were quite jolly and more like themselves,

They were thankful they were no longer grouchy old elves.

They gathered together to give out their wishes

To all those in Hubland for a wonderful Christmas.

How You Can Give A Gift To The Nominees

Your vote is an awesome gift to give the nominees this week. You know how much work it is to produce a great hub. Let our nominees know how much you appreciate their efforts. It will help them and give you a warm fuzzy feeling.

Sooo......How do the nominees become nominees?

They need to be with HubPages for less than 90 days and have an author score of 75 or more. The hub itself needs to have been published within the last 7 weeks and have a hub score of at least 55. And, most of all, it needs to be a well written, well presented hub.

Why would you want to be a HubNugget Wannabe Nominee?

You may be asking, so what's in it for me? Well, I'll tell you. First of all you will be in our Hub Newsletter. This will bring your hub to many, many people's attention and this can only make the traffic to your hub soar. The title of you Hub will be posted in the HubNugget forum-thread and you will recieve a wonderful letter of congratulations from one of the HubNugget team members. This all will lead to more people reading your writing and more fans to follow you.

What are the Guidelines?

To make your Hub HubNugget Wannabe Nominee worthy all you have to do is, choose a great topic, write a well-written, well-researched (if needed) Hub of about 800 words or so, add one or more relevant, copyright-free pictures (or even better, your own pictures), and maybe an entertaining or informative video. Last but not least, make sure you double check your work, edit carefully, remove any mistakes or spelling errors and then push that publish button.

Make sure you go to the hub learning center and read for the answers to any questions you might have. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents

Wonderful hub and a great way to get right into the Christmas spirit. I loved this!

This was a really difficult one to vote for this time on the hubnuggets. They were all so good and each had something very useful and informative to say. But as only one vote can be given I finally made my choice. What a great asset these hubbers will be to HP!

Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas!!

Oh! ps! Voted your hub up awesome!!!

Hi there, Gal - I have stopped by and commented twice, so there is definitely something up with my browsers. Must be all the ghosts of past Christmases invading my computer or something! :D:D:D If I have multiple comments, just keep the one you like best and chuck the others! :D:D:D

Loved the hub! So glad Jason was there (cute nighty and all) to help us regain our Christmas spirit!

Congrats to all the nominees!

Merry Christmas to our happy HubNuggets team and super staffers!

Best wishes to all here for a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Just found out that my Hub, What Is SEO? was nominated in the Business and Employment category! This Hub has over 5,000 words, not a bit of hype, and I know it provides valuable information to people who need to know SEO basics. Maybe more people will read it now. Thanks for the nomination - it's an encouragement to a new Hubber.

Writer Fox, congratulations on becoming a nominee. I am sure it will bring your article more traffic. Good luck. Don't forget to vote for yourself and to let your family and friends know to vote for you also.

Thank you KoffeKlatch, but, unfortunately for me, I'm the only one in my family and family of friends that can get past the "prove you are a human" thing to vote on the site. (If you read 'The Writer Fox Story' linked on my profile page, you'll understand this.) So I'll just have to depend on the humans at HubPages to vote.

Happy human holidays!

KKG, fun hub you have here, full of lots of new talent, too. I did my due diligence and finally voted in all three categories. I sometimes have to read and spend a couple of days considering where to cast my vote. I finally bit the bullet and voted in all three categories. Thanks for your continuing work for the Hubnuggets team.
