So why do we celebrate Christmas? I was asked to write a seasonal poem for my newspaper in 1999 and that was the theme that was chosen. As we celebrate the season, it's something those of us who do observe Christmas should think about.

The Baby born on Christmas

As we open our gifts and

eat our Christmas dinner,

do we ever wonder why we

celebrate this happy day?

Do we ever think about

the little baby born

in a lonely stable so

long ago in Bethlehem?

God's gift born to be

the ultimate gift of love

To bring peace on earth and

goodwill toward men.

When the little ones

play with toy balls and drums


do they wonder why?

On a day when

a peaceful child

Drew wise men who

left gold, frankincense and myrrh.

The bells which peel through

the silent night, were they

like the angels' song of joy

to the shepherds?

For all the gifts and toys,

all the wrapping and joys,

This comes down to the baby born

That first Christmas day.

I wonder how many people think about the true meaning of Christmas. My husband Jim and I become Santa and Mistress Holly Claus at this time. To some of the children it is obviously a magical time, some know about baby Jesus, to others it is a just a time for getting expensive presents. The Christmas request of one child in particular has haunted us for three years. See my poem "Santa's Grotto" Jackie <> <
