What Christmas Is All About

Christmas will always be for us
A time to reflect on Christ
The gift God gave to all the world

Was the gift of His life

We know Christmas is not about tinsel
Nor fancy Christmas wreaths
Nor is it about all the decorations
That adorns our Christmas trees
And it’s not about Holly or Mistletoe
Hanging from our doors
Nor is it about the gifts that are left
By the jolly Santa Clause
Christmas is more than all of this
And the only reason why
We celebrate Christ’s birth together

And the wonder of His life
So remember as you celebrate

Just what it’s all about
And invite the Lord to join with you
Instead of leaving Him out For
He will always be the reason

We celebrate this day

No substitute the world may offer
Can take that meaning away

Truly, Jesus is the Reason for the Season - and always will be in my heart. Nice choice of poems.

Thank You, Aunt Karen. It actually took a while to find one that stood out. I'm glad you liked it.
