They are not things. They are not objects. Neither are they human. Yet they mourn. They love. They dance. They suffer.

Happy hOWLidays owlidays

The Legend of the Christmas Owl
I'm little Christmas Owl,
as cute as I can be.
I won't say much while I'm here,
but my eyes have much to see.

When Santa starts to check his list,
you know he checks it twice.
He sends an owl to be his eyes,
and see whooo's naughty and nice!

So every time you see an owl,
with his eyes so wide and bright....
be on your best behavior for
that owl is Santa's sight!

For the hOWLidays       owlidays
