T’was The Night Before Christmas At Glen Ivy
The towels were laid on the lounge chairs with care, and friends gathered close, with conversations to share.
Some guests soaked in baths or lounged peacefully instead, while scrumptious treats from Chef Bill danced in their heads.
By the end of the day, all faces were a’ glow, each wishing they could stay and not have to go.
We all knew that Santa was well on his way, but still stopped at Club Mud for a last play in the clay.
Then all of a sudden what did we hear? It was Santa’s sleigh landing with his team of reindeer.
On the top of Sole Terrace he jumped with such ease, relieved to be in So Cal and away from the freeze.
He stopped at each pool, bath house and more, and stretched with some yoga before visiting the Spa Store.
All the reindeer got restless so they hit the salon, where they had hooves painted red and mineral make up put on.
Before he departed Santa wanted one last treat, so he got a massage (focusing on his feet).
A trip to the grotto and a mineral bath soak, then Santa took off his spa robe and donned hat and coat.
He filled all the bird feeders with special holiday seed, and visited the turtles hiding under the reeds.
With the moon on the rise o’re the mountains around, he took one last stroll through the beautiful grounds.
The reindeer stood ready, restored and renewed, as Santa left gifts for the good Glen Ivy crew.
A cup of Paradise Tea and he was on his way, exclaiming “Happy Spalidays to all, I wish I could stay!”
