It Is Even Getting Cold In Yuma For The Holidays


Merry Christmas to everyone from Yuma, Arizona.

My husband and I are spending the holidays with our children and grandchildren. Believe it or not, the weather has been down right chilly, and now the wind has picked up and sand is blowing.

I will make this week’s column a short one since time is short to see all the family.

A cute poem about Yuma at Christmas time has been given to me that I would like to share with you.

Winter Wonderland — Yuma Style

Palm trees wave, are you listenin’?

In the pool, water’s glisten’,

A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight

Livin’ in a Yuma wonderland.

Gone away is the blizzard,

Here to stay is the lizard;

A warm sunny day, we like it that way,

Livin’ in a Yuma wonderland.

In the desert we will have a picnic,

Cactus, sand and rattlers in the sun.

Christmas evening is an old tradition:

Tortillas and tamales by the ton!

Later on, we’ll perspire,

The temperature’s rising higher;

A warm, sunny day, we like it that way,

Livin’ in a Yuma wonderland.
