Sugar plum fairies, silver tinsel, sleigh bells in the air,
And old St. Nick a ho-ho-hoing, means Christmas must be near.
Children laughing, parents grappling, and reindeers all in pairs
What does it mean, this Christmas thing, on a night so cold and clear!



Christmas carols sung by friends, and presents under the tree
Mom is baking, dad is making, and kids are in the way.
"You mustn't peek; you must go to sleep, for Santa will surely see."
Mom tucks you in, with a great big grin, "And tomorrow is Christmas day!"



Santa jingles in your dreams, as does another day,
Of long ago, and far away, in a manger so forlorn.
Where wise men came, bearing gifts for a babe born in the hay.
A birthday celebration, rejoice, Jesus Christ is born!

Yes, nice write. Christmas is my favorite time. We are reminded of our Lord during Christmas. Yes, Jesus is always with us but He lives in our hearts and minds if we let him all year long!

Blessings,
