When ol' Kris Kringle was a lad,
It's said he had a dream;
He dreamed about the Christ Child's birth,
As odd as that might seem.

He came upon the manger,
Nestled there within the trees;
And when he saw the Baby Boy,
Kris fell upon his knees.

"What can I give You, Holy One,
O, Lord of all the earth?
I'd like to give You something grand
To celebrate Your birth."

And though no words were spoken,
Young Kris "heard" the Christ Child say:
"Remember Me when you grow up 
By keeping Christmas Day!"

When he awoke, Kris made a vow
To heed the Baby's call,
To celebrate the Christ Child's birth
And lavish gifts on all.

So on this day when you unwrap
Your gifts beneath the tree,
Recall the Christ Child's one request:
He said, "Remember Me!"


"Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift."
(II Corinthians 9:15 KJV)

This is super good! I also think it's good to associate kriss Kringle with the rememberance of the Christ child. So many people loose sight of Jesus in Christmas that's why I never like to see the words Merry Xmas, I feel like Christ is being left out.

Cool, cool! I actually saw an updated version of the classic "Santa Clause is Coming to Town" story where Kris visits
the Christ child. Very sacred melding.
