"Christmas Is..."

 

                                       "Christmas Is…"

Christmas means various things to different people-

Christmas is getting together with friends and loved ones,

Christmas is giving gifts to people that we care about,

Christmas is having eggnog and pumpkin pie…

So, what is Christmas really all about?

It's not just getting together with friends and loved ones,

It's not just the gifts that we give or receive,

It's not even the scrumptious food that we prepare;

But, rather the feeling of happiness when we spend time with

people who are dear to us,

The feeling of satisfaction that we've made someone

feel special,

The feeling of unity and willingness to overlook each

other's short comings,

And most of all, it is the feeling of being in peace and harmony

with one another,

Making family traditions and remembering special memories

in the years to come.

Christmas is in the air and this is a good poem to remind everyone what it is all about. And let me add- without the Holy Birth of Jesus, there can be no Christmas, don't you think so? Advanced Merry Christmas, Caroline. Love those pictures.

Yes, indeed, Lita! I actually have written another poem regarding Christ's birth. I believe I've posted it here, if I'm not mistaken. Thanks for the reminder! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. God bless!:-)
