On the first day after Christmas, I returned to the store, One ugly sweater, that I’ll never wear.

On the second day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Two boxes of chocolates, I’m starting my diet and only kept four.

On the third day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Three musical ties, I’m tired of hearing “Here comes Santa Claus”

On the fourth day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Four Christmas mugs, because I really didn’t like them.

On the fifth day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Five gold ornaments, I prefer silver.

On the sixth day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Six dried fruit cakes, I never did like fruitcakes.

On the seventh day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Seven Chia pets, I kill plants too quickly and don’t want to kill a “pet”.

On the eighth day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Eight Santa hats, no one at my party would wear them. (Bah Humbug!)

On the ninth day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Nine videos, why would I want to watch nine videos of the same movie?

On the tenth day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Ten scented candles, they made me sneeze and my eyes water.

On the eleventh day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Eleven story books, all about Rudolph and Frosty, I think I’ve outgrown them.

On the twelfth day after Christmas, I returned to the store, Twelve candy canes, that were broken, you can’t re-gift broken candy canes.

(Next year I’ll write my wish list so that I only get what I really want.)
