What is the meaning of every merry Christmas,

What describes the essence of every happy Noel,

It all depends upon the mind set we each have,

Its true defining message, and this for us to tell.


When we remember Jesus, the little Messiah,

And his fond birth, was such a long time ago,

The truest in our hearts of its real meaning,

More than just of many words, that it may show.


We all may celebrate this fine event at church,

As we sit in reverence, and all do fill each pew,

Saying our most dutiful prayer of remembrance,

In his name, as we all are so blessed to do.


As a candle that is lit, and by our hands to hold,

All may listen intently, as his story is told,

Wise men came to Bethlehem, in days of old,

Led by a star, bright, and beautiful, its light, so bold.


The Christ child, so precious, in a manger to lay,

On this first Christmas, and so blessed, a fine day,

Mother Mary and Father Joseph, angels all near,

Came wise men with gifts, as all did kneel to pray,


This humble beginning, that gave rise to much more,

The life and times of Jesus, a great wealth lay in store,

This rare child of our God, and his most wondrous gift,

Saved a world, of such derision, of its spirit to lift.


A merry Christmas, a time of family, draws them so near,

This a time of remembering, the good days of such cheer.

A tall Christmas tree, well decorated and lit up, all aglow,

Carols sung together, that helps children's hearts to grow.


A giving of gifts, as for the Christ child, on Christmas morn,

Reflecting and echoing, the finest reasons that he was born.

Christmas day, such a pleasure, as all we celebrate in kind,

A time of much love and heartfelt giving, is held in our mind.


Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, small Dutch shoes placed just so,

Bright eyes and rosy cheeks, that every child has to show,

A celebration and ovation, and in so many ways, just to say,

About the world. in unison, observed in its own unique way,


Merry Christmas to all my friends and family
