Christmas and its Meaning

Updated on October 31, 2013
cold winds now blow
cold winds now blow
angels sing on high
angels sing on high
Christmas spirit is nigh
Christmas spirit is nigh
wise men search from afar
wise men search from afar
A star to lead the way
A star to lead the way
Book of the true story
Book of the true story
holy spiritual light
holy spiritual light
The truth, is real
The truth, is real
father and son at Christmas
father and son at Christmas
where there is honor, there is truth
where there is honor, there is truth

Christmas comes but once every blessed year,

and is a time of such jubilation and of cheer,

The celebration is loved and revered by all,

Bringing fine memories for each, in its call.

The reasons in regarding this holiday's mirth,

to be observed and regarded in its fond worth.

The Christmas tree, with decorations by all,

so meaningful, to both the big and the small.

There is a "Christmas" lacking in splendor,

one of commercialism, and a false agenda.

The soul purpose, in profiting from its views,

is common to see, as a pretense, confused.

The use of this valued and honored religious time,

nothing more than for those, just to make a dime,

The best of the year, meant for the family to share

ravaged and placed in a dimension, without care.

A third false assertion of the Christmas holiday,

as seen as to be vague and so benign, they say,

The very mention of the season's true name,

draws attention, from many, a chance to defame.

There's to be a season and holiday, with no rhyme,

omitting the word, Christmas, without its true design,

Much satisfaction is derived by these folks, in jest,

as to view the birth of Christ, as in some protest.

Christmas time is almost here, once again, so very near,

and with it comes a wonderful radiance in its fond spirit,

The spirit of love and an everlasting adoration, so clear

full of fine caroling of songs, and all who wish to hear it.

The singing of the angels in celestial heights,

and the smiles of the host, on heaven's throne,

The truth is so righteous in its meaning, bright,

as the Christ Child was born, Bethlehem, his home.

      You poem makes some very good points. It distresses me to see the commercialization of Christmas and Christmas displays up in stores as soon as the Halloween stuff comes down.

      I love this holiday, my favorite because of the meaning and purpose. I am now motivated to get out my decor to begin celebrating His birth all over again.

      Mhatter, I suppose there will always be a few spoil sports around and part of human nature, we can't let these nut cases affect us and our positive attitudes. Thanks for sharing and your nice commentary as usual, my friend. whonu

      Agreed! I have had a blessed life. As Christmas is my birthday, I used the occasions to celebrate with a big party, everyone was invited. People started to change, but I kept a positive, attitude. This tradition was stopped wen some stole some gifts.
