A Puppet Show

As we quietly sit around the living room, just finished dinner we hear from downstairs, a quiet and muffled voice "we wish you a merry christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas........what comes next?"
A few more lines were tested, deemed right and out she came from behind the sofa, flitting and pirouetting in her fairy tutu, her wings fluttering behind her, she abruptly stopped when she saw us and head bent, tippytoed quickly to hide behind a chair, we watched as slowly her eyes appeared above the chair, looking around the room, "are you ready?" she whispered, we nodded and slowly her head disappeared, a few muffled bars and a little humming, and Sparkles the Polar bear puppet appeared and bowed, hesitantly looking down behind the chair, he coughed and began, "We wish you a merry Christmas! We wish you a merry Christmas! And a Happy New year!"
Amid Applauding and cheering, two sparkling eyes and blushing cheeks appeared then she tippytoed, pirouetted and flitted away with Sparkles dancing happily behind her.
Merry Christmas.
