'What Is Christmas?' Typographic Print

Bespoke Verse

Our Christmas poem print takes a witty, affectionate look at what goes on in a family at Christmas, from partying to eating far too much!

This unframed A4 Christmas print makes the perfect gift for a busy mum, family or hostess. It also makes a fabulous seasonal decoration.

It was written by Bespoke Verse poet (and Oxford graduate!) Joanna Miller, who has won lots of awards for her accessible and clever relationship-themed poems.

Whether it's envelope licking, mistletoe kissing or Grandpa snoring, everyone will recognise the scenes described in 'What is Christmas?'

For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a two line personalised message at the bottom. We can also frame the print for you.

The poem is printed onto the highest quality GF Smith white A4 card (330gsm) using Dura-Bright waterproof ink. There is no mount around the print. Unframed prints are sealed in cello with backing board behind and posted in a super stiff white envelope. Our lightweight wooden frames are either stepped white with a slightly grained effect or smooth white. Frames have a hook for wall hanging. The front is perspex. Each frame is handmade in the UK by Fine Art Trade Guild commended framers using Italian moulding. The framed product is dispatched in a purpose-made picture box.

The print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and comes ready framed: H34.5 x W25.7 x D2cm

What is Christmas? It’s wrapping & sticking & envelope licking It’s hosting & toasting & turkey roasting It’s cocktail drinking, smiling & winking It’s baking & dishing & mistletoe kissing. It’s nativity playing & going awaying It’s telly viewing & nonstop chewing It’s writing & thanking & empty the banking It’s paper ripping & double cream whipping. It’s tree decorating & staying up lating It’s bickering, laughing, hat, glove, & scarfing It’s singing & ringing, planning & bringing It’s stocking filling & lots of good willing. It’s service going & possibly snowing It’s hugging & squeezing, talking & teasing It’s greeting, competing & all too fleeting It’s present admiring & logs on the firing. It’s cracker banging & paperchain hanging It’s champagne pouring & Grandpa snoring It’s monopoly cheating & Quality Streeting It’s shopping & bopping & parties non-stopping... That’s what makes a Christmas!
