it's always fun when the family can be together..

Happy in the traditions
That every Yule-time brings
The family gathers together
With turkey and other things

The festivities are quite eclectic
Eccentricities in the air
The table set, the corners called
God and Goddess, all are there

The story of the shepherd boy
Who brought the Christ his lamb
Is read to all the children
Over pumpkin pie and yam

The Yule is recollected
And everybody partakes
Even the crusty old patriarch
Offers his sweet wine and some cakes

As clean-up begins in our house
A chorus can soon be heard
4 to 5 part harmonies
Even if we donít remember the words

Dona Nobis and Swing Low
Hark the Hearald Angels sing
Perhaps a Celtic Lullabye
Or the one about the Faery Ring

The house is filled with music
And that one day is filled with hope
Though we are Christians and we are Pagans
We are a family filled with Love

So wonderful to see a house united in love and harmony despite the parables followed to understand the truth the devine offers

Many "Christian" beliefs have their roots in Pagan traditions, Christmas being one of them.

Love & Light,

Lots of Christians and Pagans gather at our house, too, Krissy - and may all of yours have a most joyous Holiday together!

Thanks for sharing...not really sure what "pagans" stands for but I guess it's some kind of religion right??
Happy Holidays to you and yours!!
Love Tinka

I will fit in nice with your mix. I am Wiccan, so I will be sitting with your pagans. I will lead a prayer, "An' it harm none, do what ye will," and the song will be A Circle of Stone. The house, as you say will be an intermix of religion and much love. Thanks for bringing us all together, Kristian. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Refreshingly honest account.
Pity that controversy surrounds the Merry Christmas, to Happy Holidays now.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 12/13/2005
For one day anyway. LOL True, the spirit of Christmas has usuually brought friend and foe together for good tidings, etc., that's why I am so angre at the attempt to hijack the "Merry Christmas" slogan. Love the poem.
