December 23rd has come
And all my Christmas
Shopping's done.

All gifts are hidden,
Tucked away,
Until the morn of Christmas day.

When children wake,
Like souls confessed,
All light and bright, it's Christmas Fest!

Oh Gloria!
We'll sing and pray
And open gifts on that Feast Day.

Around the creche
We'll praise, adore,
And go to Mass and praise some more.

Then back to home
For Christmas brunch,
With our 10 kids, it's quite a bunch.

And if we make it
All that far...
The tree still standing with its star...

We'll sigh a breath,
Relief and more...
For the tree didn't fall on the living-room floor!

Are any New Yorkers, Manhattanites, especially, reading at this time? If so, does anyone know whether there will be a 10 a.m. TLM on Christmas at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, on East 116th Street in Manhattan? (I attended Mass there regularly, but long illness laid me up completely for a very considerable time and lengthy travel is still out of the question.) I tried calling the rectory, but no one answers.

A blessed Christmas to all. Extra thanks to any who can help with information.
