A satirical look at credit card companies....especially during the festive season....personally I don't max mine out at Christmastime, but I'm sure lots of people do.....then it takes years to pay it back....and the credit card companies are filled with glee! giggle


There’s a Santa on every corner
And a Grinch on every street!
A tired look, but nary a smile
On every face you meet!
Tis the time of year to be jolly,
The season of joy and cheer!
But everyone’s getting more upset
As Christmas draws ever near!
Your shopping lists for Christmas gifts,
Far outweigh the pocketbook!
Plastic cards with strings attached
Getting everyone on the hook!
All too quickly Christmas is gone
And these seasonal feelings will fade,
Then we’ll send your credit card bill
And you’ll see what a mess you’ve made!
Merry Christmas from your credit card company
Where we’re always full of good cheer!
We own your paycheck forever now,
Wish it were Christmas all year!

Great one Annabel. This really brought a good chuckle. Something I needed today. May God bless you every day of your life.

Ha! Right on the money so to speak, with interest! For those guys it is Christmas all year. So far this season I have charged NOTHING! Does that make me scrooge? Patrick

So sad, and so very true for so many, today;
Makes me yearn for those good old Christmas days.

EXCELLENT!...I personally do not have a credit card, but I have in the past and have run them over their limit...glad I don't have them anymore...I really enjoyed this one, its a keeper...ed

So clever, and isn't it sad that it's true! I think home made gifts are so much fun.

Yes, indeed, Anna, I'm sure that Visa and Mastercard and American Express, and Discover and BofA all wholeheartedly thank us and I thank you for putting a humorous spin onto the holiday overspending mess.
Your friend, Mark

Very informative with a big side of humor.

It is so sad that your statements here are so true, Anna. Personally, I never carry a balance on my credit card. Thank you for sharing your wit and humour. Love and best wishes,

Reviewed by Felix Perry
Although I smiled when reading this for you have such a lovely sense of humor, it is also so very true. I see it each day as people rush about the mall where I am Santa and the plastic barely goes back into the wallet or purse before it is whipped out again.
