Christmas Might Be Late (limerick)

Updated on December 12, 2012

The day after Christmas was here

And Santa he still wasn’t near

For he didn’t see

How long it would be

The security line to clear

      Pretty sad when the endless processes start affecting St. Nick!

      Very clever.... one of the biggest reasons I drive whenever I can is that it is such a pain in the butt to fly! I just want to pack my things and go. I would mind all the hassle less if I knew it made us safer.

      Nice job as always!

      Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday.

      Santa is coming all the way from Finland this year. I'll make sure he won't be late. I just have to make a phone call to the North pole first... :)

      Oh, I really hope Santa learned from last years mistake, and set aside enough time for security check so he will arrive on time this year. Cute and funny. Thanks!

      Merry Christmas to you!

      How True...How True. So where was Rudolph? Fun, one Mhatter.

      I guess Rudolph couldn't lead the way and Santa was subjected to Homeland Security?

      Yes, that's what it would be like if Santa came by plane. Fun hub.

      And what is worse is that he probably won't get through security...rumour has it that he is wanted for illegally entering millions of homes last Christmas ! LOL:-))
