No. 1504: Christmas Carroll

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves. . .'. You are invited to add your own three or four stanzas to Carroll's famous opening one. No Jabberwocks please, and there's no need to use 'portmanteau' nonsense words, or to explain them if you do. Entries to 'Competition No. 1504' by 31 December.
