In the Roaring Twenties, Christmas lights would gleam,
Gatsby’s parties danced, a festive dream.
Flappers in pearls and tuxedos so fine,
Celebrating Yuletide with jazz and wine.
Feathered headbands and bobbed hair in style,
Fireplace crackling, logs burning awhile.
Speakeasies whispered with laughter and cheer,
Prohibition’s shadow, but the spirits were near.
Mistletoe hung from the ceiling with care,
A kiss on the lips, a moment to share.
The Charleston’s rhythm on the parlor floor,
As snow softly fell outside the door.
Gifts wrapped in paper, ribbons so bright,
Glimpses of hope in the cold winter’s night.
A time when the world was changing its tune,
Yet, the spirit of Christmas remained in full bloom.
So let’s raise a glass to the ’20s of old,
Their charm and their stories forever retold.
In this vintage era, hearts were ablaze,
Wishing you a Merry Christmas, in the Roaring Twenties’ grace.
