December 25th: The Date

December 25th is the Christmas Date;
the reason I can’t afford to wait
the opportunity where I can meet my age-long mate
the entrance to the celebration is through the Christmas Gate;
‘’Merry Christmas’’ is the pass to enter
The businesses of the day anticipate some modest sales rate
The  period in time where I look forward to my marriage to my long-time friend, Kate

That’s indeed December 25th : The Date
(D-A-T-E: Defined Attainment (of) Time Embraced)
