DON'T OPEN TILL CHRISTMAS by Leslie Kelly
Was the month before Christmas, when parties are held and presents are bought.
Noelle could not believe her ears when a stirring in the next dressing room had her blushing.
And when the hunk came crashing into her room, Noelle had nary a stocking on.
But she doesn't care, as she hopes he will come knocking at her chimney.
The children were hanging their stockings with care, when Santa stole their money.
Yes, Santa danced away with money meant for Christmas sugar-plums.
Lo and behold, and lucky for all, Chicago Cop Mark Santori puts on his cap and is on the case.
A ride to the town of Christmas is the call.
There he meets Noelle, his lady from the dressing room.
There was a clatter as she recognizes him, but when he whistles and dances, she knew.
Like a flash, they sprang to bed, going to the moon and back.
More rapid than eagles they came together.
Will their affair be just a flash or is it forever
One by one, the inhabitants of Christmas are introduced. Sue, her belly full with child
And Randy, her devoted husband.
Jeremy, the louse who dare jilt Noelle on Christmas Eve past.
There are many others, who are all in the Christmas spirit.
But who may also be thieves.
When the investigation is met with obstacles in finding the Santa thief, who but St. Mark mounts to the sky, with a sleigh full of toys.
Then in a twinkling moment, he realizes he loves Noelle.
Will he solve the caper
And win the heart of Noelle.
It is Christmas Eve, but there is love and laughter in the air.
Happy Christmas to all
And the best is saved for last.
DON'T OPEN TILL CHRISTMAS is the best present of them all.
